I stare at you still, I watch your perfect face in a sweet slumber listening to your breath, my favorite noise. You are so perfect. You are healthy. You are ours and I love you so much. I can't believe that we made you, that I grew you, that you came from my body, from your dad and me. You are life's great perfection, all parts of you, I am so grateful and so incredibly tired, even so incredibly tired, I can't help but marvel in all that you are and all that you will be. You light up the broken cracks in my heart. The cracks placed there in the loss of your sister, the cracks waiting to shine in the darkness, you brought the light.
I am mama of three beautiful babes; two sons whom I have the privilege of raising and my daughter who lived for 33 sacred days.
