Can’t take my eyes off you
your bounce in every step.
From the spectators’ gallery at the gym
I pour all my love my admiration
I’d even adore, if that weren’t so embarrassing…
But only at a distance…
As long as you don’t speak, never whine,
when your mouth does not form into stubborn slit
as long as no grumble rumbles in our umbilical cord
as long as you stay unmarred and perfect.
Inspired by gym galas, Yummy Mummys and scruffy ones like me…
Linked to the Open Link Night fun over at dVerse Poets, where we are discussing passion over form this week. Well, my son is passionate about his trampolining, but his form… Still, in my eyes, he is the best competitor out there!
