Every night we say good-nights
Right after mommy dims the lights
“Ni-ni, NeeNee,” says the boy, who cannot say his T’s
“Ni-ni Corri, Ni-ni Chelle.” He says their names with ease.
“Ni-ni Sissy,” said so sweet
you want to give the boy a treat.
“Ni-ni Mommy, I love you.
Ni-ni Daddy, love you too.”
And then you’d think he would be done
But that is just the start of fun.
To his teachers, every one, he wishes them Ni-ni,
And then his favorite TV shows and all his toys, bye-bye
This is our nighttime rituals to ease the boy to sleep
and this is one of those memories I’ll always want to keep.
