Poems From the Babysitter
I loved babysitting to earn extra money when I was a teenager and even into my college years. I love children, so babysitting was fun. No taxes are taken out of babysitting money either, so that was great. I had a lot of repeat families which always made me feel as though I was doing a good job. And I never liked for the kids to just sit in front of the TV either. I always played games or did crafts with them.
When I was in college, I often babysat to make extra money. One little girl named Lauren was 14 months old and had the biggest blue eyes and beautiful curly hair. I fell in love with her and always looked forward to spending time with her. Here are two poems I wrote about her that express my feelings about this sweet little girl.
One single teardrop
Full of fear, and pain, and wonder
Traces its way from
A wide, doe-like eye
Down the soft pink cheek
And curves its path
Until it is lost in
The wispy honey colored tendrils
Of the child who has never been alone
Sweet small bundle
Of cuddles and kisses
I love to smell your
And stroke your
Till your precious little head
Falls sleepily on my shoulder,
Announcing the end
Of another busy day.
