little surges of life 

tap, tap, tapping at your shoulder
always at heels, or toes
watch them closely, they grow older
steady footing makes them bolder
surges of life; Lord kknows everythingis an adventure
zooms past and goes too fast
always giving a thirst quencher
just one chance and it’s the clencher
play the role freely castchildren, always dream pursuing
look hard at that small face
all in one moment debuting
chewing, cooing, overdoing
a quest to win the race
