Received a photo of you today.
Captured by a sweet lady,
she watched over you at times.
Purity and innocence in a tiny,
round face of only a month old
dainty baby girl.
Flawless as a blanket of snow
in the early morning hours before
any signs of life have left their marks.
Wrapped up, sleeping.
Looking like a beautiful secret
about to be revealed to the world.
A wonderful glance back in time,
my mind retraces all your steps
so far, that have formed you
into all the goodness you portray
as a seven year old princess.
A fascinating glimpse into the
future, realizing no matter
who you become in twenty years,
my eyes will always hold a vision
of your cherubic face held in time.
