Welcome to another post from the archives of children’s/YA author Robbie Cheadle. This week a poem for her youngest son, and co-author for the Sir Chocolate series, Michael Cheadle.

My Michael by Robbie Cheadle.

I love my little Michael,
He is the sweetest boy;
I often give him cuddles,
And buy him a nice new toy.

We read our favourite stories,
About dragons and brave knights;
He thoroughly enjoys them,
Then, out go all the lights.

From closed cupboards and doors,
Lurking monsters stealthily creep;
And my poor little lad,
Can’t get an wink of sleep.

Into the marital bed,
My boy quietly slides;
And between his loving parents,
From night time horrors hides.

Mom and dad lie, awake,
While Mikey kicks and dreams;
Unable to get any rest,
Counting sheep won’t work, it seems.

      1. Robbie, my pleasure! I too, am so fortunate to have two wonderful daughters who have lovely natures and are successful in life with college degrees and great careers. My oldest daughter is a speech language pathologist for children, and both have always promoted care for others. They both volunteer their time for children, animals, and believe in fair play, and democracy. Karen 🙂
