Christening Day

I lost my heart that day,
Captured by your innocent beauty.
Your eyes reflecting sky and wonder
As you lay in your white dress,
Still and silent in your cot,
Watching the shifting clouds
Filter the morning sunshine.

I held you in my arms.
And gazed into those soft, blue eyes.,
A splinter of God’s creation,
Reflecting the enormity of His love.
Your white shawl warmed my hands,
And I knew, in that moment, 
Until the stars have crumbled
And the sun is but a glimmer above,
My soul is fixed to my little girl,
With the rivets of unending love.
