what is love daddy?

What is love daddy?

it is the kissing tree honey,
young on the
swing and teasing the sky

I don’t understand daddy

it is the roots under the
tree,
wrapping around the
ground and
keeping us safe forever

Talk normal daddy

love my sweet,
is you and me
talking under this tree

What about mommy?

love is
mommy too,
sitting still so young
on the swing, asking you
to sit on her lap
while i push you both
so you
can each tease the
sun

You’re silly daddy

i know.

I love you daddy

see, you
know what love is
