Angel In Disguise

Angel In Disguise

A Poem by Scarlet Letter

My little girl

Her dark brown curls
Tussled in the wind,
Her new yellow sundress
Tattered from play,
Dirt smeared on her rosy cheeks
And under her nails,
But she doesn't care.

The smile on her face
As wide as the sky
Her expression beaming with joy
Innocent and trusting
She looks up at me in delight
With those large brown eyes
As if I've been gone a century
Rather than a moment.
My heart overflows with love
At each tiny glance.

She screams with glee
And skips to my side
Arms reaching up with anticipation
Trust and affection 
Revealed in each movement.

I pluck her from the field
The smell of wild flowers 
Like perfume on her skin
Her little arms
Envelop my neck
I cradle her in return.
I could not ask for 
A more perfect moment than this.

We move inside
It's time for good nights
She kneels beside the bed
Asking God to bless 
Mommy and daddy and her
Then climbs under the covers.
With heavy eyes
And one more kiss
She tells me she loves me
And drifts off to sleep.

I can't help but stare
At this shining jewel
Full of hopes and dreams.
I lift a curl from her cheek
And tuck it away
As I whisper in her ear
I love you too
My little angel in disguise.

wow, for a rough draft this is amazing! i can't imagine it being better! This is exactly how I have always seen my baby sister. this makes me miss her so much. it brings back all the wonderful memories of her and brings tears to my eyes. I have been taking care of her since she was born but seems like the time is going to fast! too fast! she's 5 now. but she's always been an angel in disguise. :)

I love art of all forms. The types I practice are writing, charcoal/oil pastels, music, photography, and more. Every time I look at something I see if it would be best as a picture, drawing, poem, or .. more..
