What are you doing Mama?

Living, my child,
And loving to live.
Laughing and playing
Crying and hurting
Being serious
Being stupid
Having fun.

What are you doing?

Most important of all,
my precious one,
I am learning.
Learning about living
And life.
Learning about nature,
About people
And music
And love...
Learning lots about sadness
And how
To relate
To the world.

What are you doing Mama?

My little bundle
I am doing.

What you are doing

Im experiencing
All the richness
There is
In being alive.

Of course,
Washing dishes
