                     Child’s eyes
                     That glow with shimmer in a game.                 Résumé of mine grows for one more year

                  The room is full                                     I’m thinking.
                  Hopping of your curls,                               Realizing your soft curls still grow
                  Shining of your eyes,                                In the room, space is filled with ringing of your
                  Joyful shouting of your laugh,                       uninhibited joy.
                  Joy of your imagination.                             Closed in silence.

                  You don't like when I hug you.
