Two Sweet Boys

It is time to make that depressing post move on down the line- so how about I replace that post with one of sheer and utter joy!

I have two sweet boys
One for each of my arms
They are arms with scabs from little boy tickles that are too hard
They are arms that act as a cradle to rock sweet ones to sleep
My arms end with busy hands
Hands that hold, wipe, pat, and tickle back
They tickle more gently than the tiny tickling hands do
My arms go to my chest where the sweet boys rest their heads
Into my back that is strong from picking up toys, and wiping up spills
A strong back that supports my body as it cuddles around the two sweet boys
My body is held up by legs that are constantly on the go
They bend down to bring me to the boys point of view
They stand tall to show the boys how to be strong
Even when you don't feel like being strong anymore
My legs are stubbed by feet that are dirty from the backyard
They are rough and worn and are a good seat for little boys to bounce upon
They house toes that help to pick things up when my back can't take it anymore
And at the top of this body that is starting to feel old when I am still so young
I hold my head as high as I can with a smile in my eyes and kisses worn on my lips
Escaping from my mouth there are whispers and laughs
To let these sweet boys know how deep a mothers love runs
To really show them that it runs through every inch and cranny of a Mommys body
There is not one peice of me that isn't constantly giving to them
To remind them always how irrevocably treasured Mommys two sweet boys are

So true, I can't think of a better way to describe a mother's love than with her WHOLE BODY! Much love for a sister.

And who are the gibb's and who is Tate? Do you mean to tell me that you know two Tate's??
