takes a deep breath

clings to my chest
blinks her starry eyes
says i’m the best

holds her chin and thinks
yawns forever and stares
makes a face when we talk
frowns, and smiles, the rares

poops when we least expect
goes red when we laugh at it
throws her arms in air
eats every piece and bit

loves her mommy’s voice
loves her daddy’s lap
hates to wear the mittens
detests the stupid caps

adore her coos and bahs
our sweet potato she is
she’s the life of our lives
her presence is sheer bliss
