Short Stories

You smell yummy…

She leaned in,

Buried her nose in my neck,

Took a deep breath and said,

“You smell yummy!”



I laughed,

Then thanked her kindly.

It had been a while

Since anyone invaded my space this way

To pay me such a nice compliment!


Her big beautiful eyes

Looked straight into mine,

Then she kissed me loudly

On my cheek and said again,

“You smell so yummy!”


At that moment

My heart swelled so big

I thought it would burst,

For just the day before

We were fighting

Like cats n dogs —

Using words that dug deep as daggers.


But today, her words mended my wounds

And renewed hope in our survival.

I hugged her ever so tightly

Then sang to her our favorite song…


You are my sunshine

My only sunshine

You make me happy

When skies are gray

You’ll never know dear

How much I love you

Please don’t take

My sunshine away


She beamed with delight as I sang,

Looking me straight in the eye,

Then gave me the biggest hug ever

As she said,

“I love you mummy! “

To which I replied,

“I love you too munchkin! “
