Star light star bright first star I see tonight....I wish
I prayed...for a 3rd girl.
and there you were and I heard the gasp of your first breath and then.....
My Littlest is not so little any more. A literal hairs breadth below me. I have a feeling we will always see eye to eye. Familiar with the darkness you persist in sparkling and drawing the eye. Your words on paper like those tiny beacons that strike us with wonder. Sometimes a soul that seems to have been birthed with those same stars above us. The wink in your light can make us smile and dissolve us in laughter. You are steadfast in your glow. You are wisdom shining in your constellation. Growing brighter with each year I have no doubt someday you will reach down to pat Sirius between the ears and we will be blinded by your Light ........ hopefully not struck deaf with shock by your mouth.
This week it will be 15 years. Fifteen years since the obstetricians clumsiness nearly choked your voice forever. Drowning with your first breath. God reached out and pushed you back because I have no doubt that voice is meant to be heard. That this little light was meant to shine.
So My Brilliant Starlight. I Wish For All of Your Dreams To Come True.
I would rather listen to You sing this in the kitchen...or on the back porch swing, but well....
