Long ago


She was so small.

Not able to live the promiss
every baby should bring to this world
she brought silence,
which was so intense,
that it nested in my heart.

16 she should be now.
A tall young girl
with a bright smile
and caring blue eyes.

Instead I nearly died
and was amazed
the sun was still shining
when I opened my eyes
and found the world through my tears.

She touched my life
like a butterfly in flight
and left her everlasting spirit
in my heart.
