A Brother's Love

She is on my lap
He is at my side

A little tap on my shoulder
He looks up at me
"Mommy I need to tell you something"

I lean close so he can whisper in my ear
He gently strokes his sister's soft hair

As he confides

"I love her very very much"

As pure and true as only a 4 year old can be
He gives me an extra snuggle
His baby sister an extra pat
And goes back to quietly watching the movie with us.
