her life was the beginning of mine
by Misty Dawn
she was three . . . & shaping my heart.
like her nail polish always seemed to do.
into little hearts.
I loved her so much.
she was silly.
easy to love.
she turns twelve today.
still silly, easy to love & good.
still with little hearts on her little nails.
& still shaping my heart.
chiseling my course.
& chipping away the unnecessary.
thank you God for this girl. for this gift. for this love. for this chance. for this purpose.
without her, I may not have known You.
