“To My Child”

My darling child,
I am enraptured and amazed
At each and every aspect of you;

Your hair:
strands of soft summer light;
Your eyes:
wide open windows to all you will see and learn;
Your hands;
tiny, perfectly formed versions of mine;
Your feet;
two halves a heart, they will guide your many future journeys;
Your skin:
silk, scented with dreams of your future;

All of it,
The parts and the sum of them,
Conjure many thoughts,
One stands out though,
Like a cardinal on a blanket of snow;

“I am glad you’re here”.
