    you do….

    you let it



  15. I absolutely love
    the shiny way
    your light beams.
    I do believe
    I can see a bit better.
    Yes, I can!
    And I want to let
    mine shine along, too.
    Someday, you’ll look
    up and notice what seems
    to be a whole forest
    full of lightning bugs
    blinking their shiny
    selves into the dark.
    And you’ll just know,
    they saw you shine
    and decided to let their lights
    loose too:)

    oh yes
    you are!

    i can see
    the playful
    child heart in
    this darling soul
    gifting her light and
    sharing her gift with the world!

    how sweet the sound
    of her delicate feet
    dancing among flowers

    how joyous the shine

    LOVE to YOU
    and your
    L I G H T
    and your
