Picture of Innocence

That one brown tuff of hair sticking up
gray eyes not yet turned
Begging for knowledge not yet learned
The forehead and thick eyebrows are her fathers
As much as her round face and crooked pinky toe is surely her mother's
A double chin that holds any spilled food in
And the rolls on those chubby legs
Funny how genetics are passed from nearest kin
That smile can light up a room
Such beauty in watching a child bloom


*NOTE: For my little niece. Love her to death I had to write something about her. :)

    Awww that's really adorable. I wrote a poem about niece once too. Course now she's 9 and not quite a baby anymore... haven't been on here in over a year! Good to be back and catch up with old Soup Friends :)
