…for Maria Carolyn born asleep Dec 19th 2000
That morning the snow fell so softly…like the snowflakes were tiptoeing – so they wouldn’t wake you up. The wind didn’t dare to move the leaves – right outside our window.
I looked at your face… I still see it when I close my eyes – so tiny and so beautiful – so silent and peaceful.
Ten little toes and ten little fingers… a perfect creation but silent and still – seemed like you were just sleeping… I waited and wished…but you never woke up.
