i can see
 every wish      
          i ever made
lit up in your smile

with the loveliest 
freckles
mapping constellations          
       across your cheeks

I can see this being possibly about the connection of unequivocal love between a mother and child. Those unspoken magical moments shared with pre-emptive knowing, like seeing the smile before their face knows its coming. An unbreakable bond that is indestructable.
This should be the example a dictionary definition of poetry should use.

Indeed the words of someone besotted and filled with romantic notions about the person who is significant in their lives. Reads well.

Your lines Ana, lit up my smile instantly. All I could think was Mother to her child. Freckles are Dad's delight my Dad would say. Kisses from the sun.

In a way, yes. For my daughter. Thank you for reading Delmar. :)
Perhaps the only evidence one needs to validate love. When we find such fulfillment in a smile and freckles, we need little else. You are a master at artful brevity.
