Daughter

See the source image
If all we have is here and now, wrapped in the moment's arms
To see the line of sunrise bleeding inky peaceful charm.

To crush the darkest fears at night with fingers laced in mine
And deep in your blue eyes I see your joyful vibrant shine.

To wash away the worry of the meals and plans and musts,
For this is all that matters and you've given me your trust.

By candlelight we laugh and shout and eat toast by the fire
And find the spaces in between the gadgets, noise and wire.

A thousand seconds just like this, made Christmas warm and good
No power, rules and structure
No doing what we should.

In gratitude we say to  darkness smothering the scene
 with no distractions light Shines brightly, from a new formed teen.

How you are is my best gift, this year: and all to come.
I humbly write my thankyou card, I'm blessed to be your mum .
