Sweet One

Sweet one, 
tonight I kissed your face
Soft pink cheeks
Furrowed brow erupting into smiles
In your beeming eyes
a sea of wonder
a fascination of 
the here and now
Instant and raw emotions

From moment to moment
I watch you grow before my eyes 
a squeal and
random babbling 
to anyone who will listen
and we all do.

Tonight I kissed you goodnight 
and said ‘I love you’
As I closed the door I heard 
‘love you’ back.

I love you, dear one. 
May you always have your playful excitement for life and sweet snuggles – the world needs more of you.
