Baby all gone

 
 
She doesn't really like to talk  
not when everyone is circled around
trying to put words onto her tongue  

but she likes to say "all gone"  
and she's a fair understanding
of when to say it  

like when she comes to visit
and turns off the tv, or my laptop  
or takes the last cookie  

she'll look right at me and say it  
with a mischievous twinkle in her eyes  

she can sound a sigh of resignation  
before sleep binds her eyes closed  
or when she needs to stop running
'cos the wind's blown her hat off  

or when there's no chocolate left  

and she's no stranger to showing frustration  
with two clenched fists and a firm foot stomp
she'll shout something, a single muffled word
!! ..and by-golly she'll mean it

she's not even two yet
but she can talk when she feels like it
just not when people want her to
