Because you are…

Standard

I love you dear daughters

Because you are mine

For so many reasons I could never explain

Because you are mine

Because you are fine

Because you are fast

Because you are blasts

Because you are loud

Because you are round

Because you are shy

Because you are smiles

I love you dear daughters

Because you are mine

For so many reasons I cannot contain

Because you are whole

Because you are gold

Because you are bold

Because you are so

Because you are joy

Because you are fun

Because you are noise

Because you are bliss

I love you dear daughters

Again and again

For so many reasons I don’t even know

Because you are mine

Because you are ours

Because you are us

Because you are more

I love you dear daughters

I will say it again

Because you are love

Because you are joy

Because you are you

Because you are true

My most perfect truth

They Love To Dance

Standard

20130625-210220.jpg

Twirling round in flutters like a rainbow butterfly
Sincere pride warms their hearts
It reflects outward in the dim auditorium
Joy, smiles, softness, and love on their innocent faces

Gracefully they glide like a flamingo in its natural habitat
Glistening brightly on white ice
They twirl and twirl in tutus of purple and blue
Tiny hands gloved in white

Delicate flakes of snow fall slowly to their beautiful rhythm
As the orchestra plays sensationally on

* I wrote this for the girls over a year ago, but recently found it after they performed in their first ballet recital. They haven’t stopped talking about it, so I thought to keep the excitement going by sharing this :). Thank you always!!!

Christmas Eve

Standard
Silver bells chime
As delicate snow lace falls

Santa rides high
Rudolph & co with gifts in tow

Christmas Eve lingers
Little boys and girls happily dreaming
Of treats and presents

Carols heard through the night (house)
Christmas dawn soon will be here


A merry Christmas Eve friends!!! Have a wonderful week

Dream On Little One: A Poem For Abby D

Standard

Dream on little one dream on
Dream on little love dream on

Dream of ponies
Dream of stories

Dream of bunnies
Dream of honey

Dream of lilies
And of mom and dad’s
Sweet kisses

Dream of toys
And it’s many joys

Dream of love
And peaceful doves

Dream of mommy
Dream of daddy

Dream on little baby dream on
Dream on little Abby dream on

*This poem was originally written 6/6/2011 for my friends’ daughter a few days after she was born. It’s her first birthday today and I asked her mom for permission to share it :).  I updated it this morning. I hope Abby approves, this one is dedicated to her. I pray she dreams big and large, and may all her big and  large dreams come true. Happy birthday Abby, many more happy and healthy years, love*

Filling up the sky

Sweet little angels
Flying up so high
Sweet little laughter
Filling up the sky

Sweet little lovelies
Playing just nearby
Sweet little echoes
Filling up the sky

Sweet little voices
Ringing out so high
Sweet little noises
Filling up the sky

Happy Child

Boy, Girl, happy child
Say your prayers
and be mild

Boy, Girl, happy child
Play around
but don’t be wild

Boy, Girl, happy child
Smile and laugh
in life’s delight

Boy, Girl, happy child
Say your prayers
then say good night
