When I get little

We keep telling you
about the things you can do
when you grow up
and today you had a few things
in store for me too

when I get little

like how you will help me
into your car seat
and teach me to count
to really big

at first I marveled
at your circle of life
then I realized how mighty
it must feel
to imagine you finally
in charge of me

but as you went on
I could have wept
for how you pictured
all the ways
you would soothe me
in our big jagged world.
