Now That My Youngest Child is Nearly Three

“May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and  the pure light within you guide your way on.” – Irish blessing

 

I will miss the passing days

of soft, small hands on my heart

cherry kisses on cheeks like

moons (hers) and apples (his)

sleepy heads of spun-gold hair

heavy on my shoulder

sweet as wild honeysuckle
