Can you hear them?
How quiet they are.
You must close your eyes and listen.
How tiny they can be.
You must crouch down to see where they linger.
How gentile they are.
You can ever so slightly see,
Tiny hearts beating.
Tiny fingers touching.
Tiny toes wiggling.
Not so tiny eyes opened wide.
Exploring the endless possibilities.
Hold them close.
They feel your breath, and rest upon you breast.
Listening, feeling, learning.
You close your eyes.
A slight warmth touches your chest.
A slight breath caresses your neck.
The breath of wonder
The breath of love
Their breath of life.
