Ava Lu

I bought her some butterfly wings all sparkly pink and ready to fly but she hunkered down with her favorite book with a hurricane twinkle in her pale blue eyes I combed her golden hair to a shine and pulled it all back in a bow A few moments later she emerged from her room, a head full of hair clips, to put on a show I asked her to tell me a story about all the animals she wants to meet She started to sing and to dance and to swing and she pulled me right out of my comfortable seat. I smoothed back her hair before bed and prayed that her good dreams would start After "amen" she sleepy-eyed said: "Mommy, I love you with all of my heart."
