whimsy


 Tea for Three
Lee Scott


Come and sit with me and we'll have tea 

Of places we will go and things that we will see 
Just the two of us 
My dear daughter and me


A little wooden table 

Yes, of course you may bring your bear 
And place him on my knee. 
No longer just the two of us 
It's tea for three, I see 
My dear daughter, the bedraggled bear and me


The years passed by and you grew up 

Cherub hands dimpled daintily, clutching ivory cup of tea 
Twinkle laughter owns the moment 
Baby faced & full of glee 
Starshine dusted by the angels 
Oh, God's precious gift to me!


If I live to be a hundred 

Then when I shared your dazzling presence 
And together we sipped tea. 
My dear Daughter, the bedraggled bear, and Me!


I shall never richer be 
Framed in memory, I still see 
With chairs for two, not three 
And talk of things that were and things that are to be 




{whimsical}

So very sweet, and exactly what I think of when I think of whimsy! I love my boy, but whimsy doesn't really waft around our world a lot... :<) Beautiful, magical capture, Becky!

Thanks for the comment! I was just telling my husband today that I wish I could travel back and be a child for a day... I would need to add a tea party to the list of things to do!
