her sweetness just cracks my heart
w i d e o p e n
after a verrrrrry long day
i headed out to check on my favorite family.
pip came right to me and let me feed her,
which i know she really needed.
i stayed for a long time,
and she seemed to rest easy,
knowing i was on the lookout for danger.
i get choked up several times a day
thinking of her, out on the pond,
minding her precious babies.
it's all i can do to not pitch a tent
and keep watch over her, day and night.
