The curl of your eyelashes,
Ringlets of red hair at your ears.
The corners of your mouth turning up to smile,
The eyebrow lift of intention.
The glow in your eyes when discovery hits
Your pinky finger, no longer than an inch.
The soft quick breaths of air rising from your chest,
A big sigh of effort when trying your best.
Chunky thighs etched with needle pricks,
And growing toes making big steps.
Small movements yet, your eyes show me a bigger world.
You’re going to move mountains my dear.
A force of nature, strength beyond compare.
