Daughter

 

IMG_5782

Baby blue eyes you once had
When first you gazed on me
Little eyes darting around
Seeking

Utter awe
Both of us
You so new
Dropped through

A soft little hand
Pawing me
To make my milk

Tiny creature so helpless
With powerful latch so fierce
Depending
For survival

I hear your every breath
The stops and starts
My own breath held
Till yours begins again

Little frog legs
in the baby bath
Wobbly new mama’s hands
Will not let go

Awesome girl
So bright
So kind
And fun

Sing together harmony
Say the same thing
Make the same sound
Synchronously
So often
Like psychic twins
Jinx one two three

Ten years full on
Intense immense
Life changing
Growing
Heart opening
Astounding
Deep

Love like
No other
