Five Years Old

Five years.

It steals my breath and freezes me here to catch her before she's gone.

"Will you always be my baby?" I ask her almost daily.

"Yes."

"Promise?"

"Yes."

"Forever?"

"And ever!"

She is my heartbeat and her joy is my center.  Her laughter is easy and her spirit is light.  Her world is bright and simple and fireflies and shooting stars and I would give anything to see it always so.

Happy birthday, baby girl.  My heart is forever yours.
