marvelous eyes
marvelous hair
deep sea blue
and golden light
this naptime
as you sleep
I drink in the mystery of you.
this beautiful child
one full of noises
and wonder
and pure heart of joy.
you who grew inside of me
with a tiny freckle above your right eye
what a gift it is
to teach you
learn with you
snuggle you to sleep
what a rare and intimate connection
you needing me
just as much as
me needing you.
most at rest
as you rest
relaxed in my arms.
