Sick days

January 9, 2014

Every time I got frantic about
all the work I was missing the last two days,
a wise and mighty voice commanded me:
Be here now. Put down your phone.
Are you crazy? She wants to snuggle
on the couch with you.
She wants you to read her stories and stroke her cheek.
She wants to hold your hand when she feels awful.
Only a fool would turn away from this moment.
