There Is A Girl

There is a girl.

Rosy cheeks smile the biggest smile from the littlest of mouths.

Eyes bright with excitement and a touch of mischief.


She spins, spins, spins, tumbling down to giggle on the floor, rolling, little feet swinging in the air.

Now she’s up!

Curly wisps of blonde hair fly like sparks of fire as she runs, arms wide, little legs stomp, stomp, stomping into the arms of love.

Love so big, so huge — to grasp the truth…

The air catches in a breath as the sting of beautiful tears fall gently down turned up lips.

A little face with nose scrunched and head tilted cries out, “Mommy! No cry, wipe it?”

A soft touch of innocence spreads away the overflow, a kiss placed onto still wet eyes from lips small.

Oh! Love so big!

If you enjoyed this, head over to Amazon, Google or Kobo and purchase “Into the Dark”.
