. . . . . . . you’ve 10 toes
. . . . . . . you cry
. . . . . . . you sleep
. . . . . . . you awake
. . . . . . . you smile

I’m sorry…

. . . . . . . you cry
. . . . . . . you fall
. . . . . . . you hurt
. . . . . . . we fail you

I hope…

. . . . . . . you laugh lots
. . . . . . . you paint

. . . . . . . you meet Jesus
. . . . . . . . . . . . . and play with him

I came upon your blog while surfing. What a beautiful poem to your daughter. I pray that she does discover Jesus.
