Tucked In Good

I used to tuck her in

When it was night

And I’d read to her

Out of Dr. Seuss.

If she was sick

I’d softly sing,

“You are my sunshine.”

But no matter what,

Healthy or sick,

I would make sure

She was snug in bed

By asking one question.

Are you as snug as a bug in a rug?

It was something

My folks used to ask me.

Now as she is marred,

I start to wonder

Will she pass on the tradition?

Are my grandbabies

Going to be

As snug as a bug in a rug too?
