7 Years Ago Today
has it really been that long?
since they placed an 11 pound baby in my arms
a baby that was almost 8 months old
and should have been twice that size
and should have been sitting
and should have been eating some solids
a child that was hyper vigilant even in her sleep
Who was beyond upset if anything in the house changed while you were asleep
who would not take anything resembling solids until you were 12 months old
who was afraid to have me out of sight...for years and years
Is that really the you from 7 years ago?
Its all starting to fade.
Because you have shed that cocoon.
And you have begun to spread those wings and fly
Like the beautiful butterfly you were always meant to be.
soar up high
on the gentle breeze
and through the howling winds
show us all
your beauty and strength
that was hidden within for so long
What a miracle you are.
What a joy you are.
What a spirit you possess.
and love well
my beautiful princess.
