A Daughter’s Symphony


Crescendo

Sleep softens your face
Long lashes cast
a gentle shadow
on the smooth cheek
I long to kiss
I dare not disturb
your sweet repose
I want to watch
a little longer
recalling the time
you clung to me
even in slumber
when I rocked
your tiny form
to sleep
in my arms
Love swells
like a crescendo
as my heart
plays the symphony
you always conduct
