maker of newborn memories

the moment's gone
charging down the drive yelling "dadda"
pulling the red plastic wagon up to my studio window
running off down the driveway
squealing with glee
stop at the gate
turn around
head back toward me again
sternly sucking right thumb
"gabba gabba" i call out from the open window
then running and more squeals
plastic wagon right behind
this was only 3 minutes ago
now i look out my window and all is quiet

you're gone
nothing happening but sunny stillness
we've birthed a newborn memory
not even 5 minutes old
i wonder how long it'll live
