i saw it in her
the day she
was born
the moment
she took
her first
breath
it was there
i not only saw it
i felt it
and i knew
instantly
she was filled
with His light
and the moment
that tiny second
when her hand
opened up
grabbed my finger
and squeezed
as her milky
brown eyes
kissed my soul
with that
silky glaze
i felt her strength
she never screamed
she cooed
but she did this
over and over
like the melodic
notes
from your favorite
love song
she was so tiny
a mini perfect
sculpture
hand crafted
by God
and from the moment
they wrapped her
up in pink
it was her
go to color
she had stand
straight up
tufts
of chocolate brown hair
that was so soft
it tickled your fingers
one of her eyes
looked as if it
was still sleeping
still caught in dreams,
like God was
filling part
of her up
with all the
amazing things
she would do
in this world,
who she would
one day become
and how she would
change this world
on her own terms
in her own
stubborn way…

it was all visible
on the day
the light
cascaded down
upon her
beautiful face
and time stood still…
in an instant
she made
me believe
in miracles
she was living proof
God answered
prayers…
little did i know
this tiny soul
would steal
my heart
as she
rolled
crawled
danced
and sang
herself
into
life
wrapping
me up in
slowed time
like the melodic
tick, tick, ticking
of a clocks hand…
at the same
time
she
would
be
the tsunami
the raging tide
the downpours
of life
that left me
wrecked upon
the sandy shore
knowing
i could
never save
her,
for in becoming
who she was
meant to be
she must first
learn to save
her self…
