Poem 316 – This Child

This Child, for Miller

This child’s face is a library of stories
she leaves me pages of poses
on my cell phone to find when I’m weary
& in need of the light only she can shine

This child’s laughter is a palace
she leads me to secret rooms filled with treasures
to discover when I’m low in faith
& in need of letting go

This child’s spirit is a galaxy
she pours stardust in paths before me
so each step I take is with her
toward the impossible
