THE NAP


By beanerywriters(11,675)



Sunlight came through the window. He sat in the warmth and watched the little girl toddle across the floor. Her beautiful dark curls shone in the sun and she watched in fascination as the sunbeams sparkled on her shoes. Feet coming up, she tried to watch as she did her toddle walk. The man's heart burst open as he saw this little one outshine the sun. His life, so cold, was finally warm.  Smiling up at him she climbed up onto the feet of his wheelchair. "DaDa" she said, as she used all her toddler determination to pull up onto his lap. Quietly she sat down and leaned her head against his chest. He leaned his head down and smelled the baby hair and let it fill him with life and joy. Delicate curls like soft spider silk tickled on his face. He felt her breathing get deeper and looked down at her thick dark lashes. He saw the thumb go into the perfectly heart shaped pink mouth. He gazed at the droplets of sweat forming just below the button nose. 

His breathing slowed with hers and he thought, just before sleep overcame him, " It's nap time, and this is worth every moment of my life."
