Poetry Corner – “Little Hands”

On September 7, 2009, a little person came into my life, and even though I did not birth her, I am amazed by her all the same continuously. She possesses beauty and brains and brawn–and she knows it. Her sassiness exasperates me…until her sweetness bowls me over. To watch her flourish has been a blessing that I wish everyone could experience. I don’t see her as much as I used to several months ago, but I attempt to see her often. A precious thing it is to have little hands that love you.

“Little Hands”

Little hands reach up to me
Eyes glittering like starshine
How can I deny this lullaby?
Grew from fetus to fearless before my gaze
Amazed am I these current days
The wondrous things I hear you say!
The world through your sight
I can only imagine what that’s like
But I’ll have you in mine a long time.
