Amber

Little child

forging tiny
knee-capped
imprints
on the rug 

feels
a gentle hug

from arms
so warm
and soft

one’s that hold
you aloft

Your eyes
stare downward

in wonder

and under
neath those 
starried eyes

can you see
the caring two
who are trying?

to give in excess
all the love
they possess
in their souls

unto you

to behold


Tiny girl

inhale all
the splendors
of the world
now that
you’re young

and the
subtle songs 
unsung

heard
as you grow 

are silent
melodies
of a love
you’ll come
to know

when you
are 
holding
your own

little

child.

Step forward, 

my love.

    John, this is just precious. It made me smile. They are so sweet and innocent, aren't they. Always watching everything and learning from everything we do. Love Christie
