sometimes you would dash off to hide near the window

I would reach out for the towel after your bath
and you would be         gone
in that moment

I would pretend to search for you under the bed
and inside the cupboard
and you would laugh
when I look inside my jewellery box
shaking the curtain

we would exchange this kiss
through the lace
and you would laugh even more
with its tickle

and I would tell you
“don’t ever grow up”

but you would continue
to play with my make up
play house
with your dolls

……….some moments are frozen
you cannot move them
out of their times

but they can move you
