Gone...

With much to write and no heart to write it until I write this:

They are

sunshine sparkling on water droplets

giggles
snorts
laughter

petty arguments and
shiny moments of unexpected kindness

a small hand in mine

three pairs of blue eyes and
one pair of hazel

tugging and dragging and pulling me everywhere at once

"Mommy Mommy Mommy!"

piles of love
love so thick it sits on me like a second skin

easy tears and easy smiles

swimming in stuffed animals
tree climbers
artists
avid readers

endless questions

hugs
kisses
bedtime stories
lullabies

(I try to fill them up enough to last five more months).

They are

perfect
beautiful
brilliant.

Mine.
