Little Nothings

Illustration by alé Mercado for Little Nothings Poem

My favorite moments
aren’t significant at all.
It’s rolling over in the morning
to see you lying there,
trips to the grocery store,
you lying on the floor
with your head in my lap
while we listen to music.
I read my books and you play
video games or surf the Internet
and we don’t speak.
It’s skateboard dates and
car rides where your hand rests on my leg,
just to grab an impromptu snack.
No, my most treasured moments
don’t seem like very much,
but they’re my most precious
possessions, and I’d give it all up
to keep having these little nothing
moments for the rest of my life.
