A MOMENT OF CHILDHOOD
OPTIMISM WITH MY HEARTSTAR CHARACTER,
Sitting on the living room couch
Dressed in a nice new pair of shorts
And a cute tank top,
wiggles his toes;
Feeling very happy and proud.
In the midst of being fascinated
By how lovely and cute
His legs and feet are,
Young Jonah takes a walk
through his heart
As he sits there counting
“I’ve got a great Mommy and Daddy
Who love, love, love me
so, so much.
I’ve got my best friend Wesley
Who I love, love, love very much
Like a brother.
“I live in a nice, comfortable house
With lots and lots of good food.
I sleep in the softest, warmest,
Most comfortable bed in the world.
“I’ve got lots and lots of great friends
And plenty of wonderful neighbors.
Most of all
I’ve got myself.
My love, my health, my beauty
… inside and out.”
Jonah jumps up from the couch
Then he runs into the kitchen;
Gives his Mommy and Daddy
Hugs and kisses
“I love, love, love you.
You’re my number one blessing.”
