Child of Pink

fuzzy flowers

Parasols and baby dolls

Clutched in alabaster arms.

Coated with sugar, coated with love.

Wide eyes bright with trust  

Chasing dandelion fairies.

Being wrapped around those

Sweet, sticky fingers.

Freeze frame today

Too soon, her eyes will follow him, not today’s butterflies

Freeze frame today

Too soon, her hand will be in his, not mine

Freeze frame today

Too soon, she will look to him for protection, for strength, for home

Freeze frame today

Please, freeze frame today
