Capped with soft golden hair
Her blue eyes opened
She smiled
At once
She knew I was there

I reached for her tiny hand
She gripped my finger
With fierce intensity
I kissed her forehead
I knew
I loved her completely

The girl child
Of Moondust and I
Born in summer
She cradled her
To her breast
As we looked out
And saw in to her eyes
Of sunsets
And eagles flying in the west
