All the moods and manners of a woman,
Are encoded in your six-year-old-girlís brain.
And the sorrows, joys and tensions of a lifetime,
Are, for you, in every moment, there contained.
How is it youíre not blown apart by anger?
What strength ensures that hearts like your donít break?
When the merest look or word can start you crying,
Aphonic with a passion you canít speak.
You love me and you hate me and you canít care less,
Though you know a dozen ways that I should change.
You hate me and you love me, more than words express.
How is it that I cause you so much pain?
Itís no great mystery, if I may be so bold,
That all of your best friends are other six-year-olds!


Youíre Bliss, youíre Tenderness, youíre Grace Incarnate,
Your beauty is a sight I scarce can bear;
When, fresh from your bath, you sit down beside me,
And scream as I attempt to comb your hair.
Someday I know this too will be behind us,
Someday you will emerge out of this dream,
Someday you will call off this childish conflict,
Someday Öperhaps when you are seventeen?
Now we struggle through this lengthy transformation,
As, like a butterfly, you shift and re-define,
Using all the power of imagination,
Your personality to redesign.
Deep within your brainís cells chemicals combine,
I scramble over eggshells, to avoid your heartís landmines.

Six year olds are very demanding, yes, but they are still very much the kid they really are. A fun age! :) Wonderful write! :)
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 12/28/2005
Six year olds are very demanding as they are beginning to find themselves. Their needs and wants to design themselves as individuals. When their needs and wants are understood, they will beel more secured and may calm down.
