Amaze Me

My precious miracle, Meggie
You continue to amaze me

As the way your smile
Curls up to reveal sparkles in your eyes

As your tiny frame
Hides under your oversized clothes

As you reveal a boo-boo on your knee
Waiting for Mommy's special kissies

As the warmth of you smells sweet
As you lean in for some love

As your fresh youth
Exudes from your being

And your radiant laugh
Erodes my adult essence

Reminding me that my melancholy
Will be transient

And you will always love me
As I love you

Beautiful, Jen -- beautiful. As is Meghan's cookie-crumb smile ;)
