OLWG #49 – I Never Win These Arguments

Written for OLWG #49


“I want to hear you sing it,” she tells me with her crooked grin. Her deep blue eyes glistened and golden pre-Raphaelite curls hang in ringlets that frame her face.

Kiddingly, I say, “I forget how it goes.”

“No you don’t,” she laughs, and wraps her arms around my neck.

“Alright, but only this one more time.”

“OK,” she agrees, so I begin to hum.

Her smile grows larger. She realizes that she has won, “I can’t hear you,” she whispers into my ear.

I increase the volume ever so slightly and sing. “Rock a bye, and good night,” she lays her head on my shoulder and sighs.

“Thanks, Daddy,” she says softly and closes her eyes.


This week, the prompts were:

  1. I forget how it goes
  2. It’s a blessing
  3. I can’t hear you

Don’t think! Write!
You have 25 minutes but if it takes longer – just don’t tell anyone.
