Empty Play

Empty play is left around, silence fills the air abound.

Weekends gone but full of joy, what’s left are quiet lonely toys.

Sometimes sit where you played away, wondering the thoughts that came your way.

Here today but gone tomorrow, time with you is never borrowed.

Growing up fast untimely pace, slow down sweetie no need to race.

Can’t accept one day you will grow, can’t shift gears from fast to slow.

Pick you up from your bed, deep asleep rest your head.

Gently bounce and whisper soft, recap the day and my love aloft.

Descend to bed my arms extend, sweet dreams to you from my heart I send.

A new day awaits begin anew, toys where you left them and ready for you.
