For My Grace Elisabeth

This.

This is the moment I first saw you.

Even all red-faced and squishy…

You took my breath away.

This.

This is how much sweet love waited…

For you.

Right from the beginning.

So many precious aunts and uncles…

Grandparents and great-grandparents…

Who would carry you, love you and keep you.

Always.

This.

This is how we spent today.

Eight precious years ago.

A long-awaited snuggle fest.

Christmas and Joy.

In a perfect little bundle.

This.

This is the soundtrack.

I’d create for this day.

The song your daddy sang

While you danced together,

In a quiet and steady sway.

Yes.

This.

This is the day.

Love quietly changed me.

From that first glance

To the moment

 My heart leapt quietly from me

And began walking around

In you.
