Hakuna Matata

+  She hopped into the car at ten minutes past ten,
a brilliant ball of energy.
+  “Listen to these songs, mom, and tell me which one I should use for my solo!”
+  And as a familiar tune began to play, she said,
“Well, not this one… But let’s listen to it first!”
+ Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
+  And I was transported to another place
and another time
+  when these big littles were
oh-so-little
and our philosophy was:
problem-free.
+  And I’m not sure why she did what she did.
I’m just so glad she did it.
+

I needed the reminder.
