A Million Kisses

If I Only Had a Million Kisses - A Poem

If I only had a million kisses
I don't know what I'd do
How do you stop at a million kisses
When you have children two?

You start with them each morning
You end with them at night
You offer them all day long
Because that's what feels right

You dole them out with each hello
You add them to each goodbye
You hand them out for bonks and bruises
They are the remedy for each small cry

A million kisses would be gone like that
Most likely sometime before noon
A million kisses would be gone in nothing flat
Definitely too soon

You give them out for love
You give them out for fun
You give them out to soothe a soul
You can never give just one

You can place them on a little foot
You can place them on a hand
You can place them on a little cheek
It really makes no difference where they land

Kisses offer comfort
Kisses show you care
Kisses make things better
Kisses mean that you are there

If I only had a million kisses
I don't know what I'd do
How could you stop at a million kisses
When you have children two?
