that reflect the sunlight
that sparkle when you laugh.
I never thought you’d have blue eyes.
laugh in delight.
Soft lips that kiss me for being your mommy.
that rest on my shoulder when you’re tired,
that inspire laughter when I tickle them.
They are flushed from the sunshine
because you don’t want to go inside.
You are a sweet soul.
Your sweetness inspires me
and makes me aware of the
sticky places inside my heart.
I want to be a better person.
I want to be more like you.
that see me and smile,
I don’t deserve you.
But I will love you nonetheless.
I will love you more than I love myself,
which will be easy.
Sweet soul, I can promise you
But I’ll try not to fuck you up.
And I’ll laugh with you.
And I’ll remind you when you need reminding.
And I’ll kiss you for being my baby.
And we can sit outside,
forever if you want to.
