A Child's Love

Pictures arrived
that brought back
wonderful memories.

Whenever she would visit
from miles away
this child showered me with love.

Always seeking me out and sitting by me.
beautiful smile always on her face
Still this day it remains.
I do not believe I have ever seen her
without a smile on her face.

A note would often be found
on my bedroom dresser
after she had left for home
sometimes with a heart drawn
on a small piece of paper
"I love you
Aunt Ern"

Her daughter,
my great niece
was married several weeks
ago in Michigan

How I wish
I could have been there.
My younger sister passed
away 4 years ago and
how she would have enjoyed
this wedding of her granddaughter.

That couple looks like something from a wedding magazine. I hope their life together is perfect.

I needed to read such heartwarming thoughts today as I ponder on an estranged daughter's birthday and a beloved niece who won't speak to me.
