A poem for my niece, oh goshers how I love her so!

"
Chubby fingers and a snub nose,
loose brown locks wild and free.
Bright wide blue eyes, soft pale skin.
Secrets whispered into trusting ears.
Smiles,giggles, tickles and kisses.
The way she gets excited
over simple everyday things.
A spider holds her attention,
butterflies delight and fascinate her.
For all these things and more,
I love her.
Her innocence, her wonder,
the funny things she does.
The way she runs to me,
to make her feel safe,
she snuggles in my arms until she is safe again.
The way her face lights up when she sees me.
I love her.
I love my beautiful niece,
with everything I have.
Every time I see her
my heart threatens to explode.
I love her because
she is part of me.
She is of my blood,
and I will never leave her.
I love you Isabelle Leigh.

Really nice and light-hearted poem. It makes unhappiness light, and enjoyment heavy. Good job.

kids are great, aren't they?

i'm not a sentimentalist (as i'm sure you've gathered, ha) but this one struck my soft spot. great stuff. you actually managed to make a cynical f**k like me well up with happiness with your beautiful and honest description of beautiful, and honest innocence. what you see is what you get with children, and this pome expressed that wonderfully. great stuff.

How very, very sweet and loving of you to write this about your niece. I feel that I know her too. Keep this one and don't lose it, because it will become even more meaningful and important as the years progress.

Love it! It is absolutely perfect.

So sweet the way you describe her, everything down to the snub nose! Kids always have such cute little noses. And the simplicity of being a small child-you captured that beautifully.

I have two nieces, but I'm not close to either of them. Your niece is very lucky to have you. The feeling you described of your heart about to burst, that's the way I feel about my two boys. I just love those little guys, even when Evan tries to play his dad's guitar and makes it go out of tune, it's still so amazing.
