Here’s a little ditty that I wrote for my eldest daughter this year. She is my miracle child, & she amazes me. Sometimes, when I watch her, words just seem to flow through my mind, like a song. They echo & resonate. They’re not much, as far as words go, but the emotion they express fills me each time they sail through my brain again. I love being a mom.
Ode to My Daughter
I love to watch you dance & run,
I love to hear you sing.
I love to listen to your jokes
& push you on the swing.
I love to make tomato soup
& eat some cheese with you.
I love to snuggle on the couch.
Your smile lights up the room.
I love to look into your eyes
that look so much like mine.
I love that you are sweet & smart.
I love that you are kind.
I love to cuddle you close to me.
I love when you are wild.
I love that you were given to me.
I love that you’re my child.
