#50 Precious Words Writing Challenge

By Lori Himmel

50 words

You whispered me awake, “sunshine.”

Flipped pancakes, poured my juice, so kind.

Held my hand on the way to school.

Reminded me of the “golden rule.”

“Oops!” I dropped a plate, so sad.

Hugged me tight and didn’t get mad.

Read my favorite books in bed.

“Goodnight, my little sleepyhead.”
