Astute observations

Some times you can be utterly bewildered by the astute observation of a child, and i was caught completely off guard this morning by my daughter.

As we were playing in the morning before I had to leave for work I told her I need to get ready to leave for work she told say,with a blink or hesitation, ” Aba, no Work, Enough” I was stunned for a second and when replied with” True, but I need to go” to which she replied ” Aba, Sleep , Feel better” .

Short, to the point and 100% accurate, if only I could have followed that Zen advise I would have been a very happy man, Sadly I had to disengage myself from the play time and leave for work, with a song that has been popping in to my head every time I think of my kids , Twilight Time by The Platters :

Heavenly shades of night are falling
It’s twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling
It’s twilight time
When purple colored curtains
Mark the end of the day
I hear you my dear at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor
As day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender
The setting sun
I count the moments darling
Till you’re here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here in the after-glow of day
We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
Here in the sweet and same old way
I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
Like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me
With dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just
To be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Together at last at twilight time

I know that the song is meant for adult lovers, but I understand the yearning expressed and I feel it also expresses how i feel about the chance to see my kids.

Hence the expression “out of the mouths of babes” no games, just straight observations.

Frequently too true for comfort ;)
