If I could see what she actually
sees as snippets of life
come her way for the very first time,
everything so fresh and new, yet
words unavailable to her,
I would have lots of colors and
movement in everything, with
laughter and excitement everywhere.
I would float with the butterflies,
swirling colors to brighten the world.
I would sing with nightingales,
trilling tones of comfort and cheer, and
I would dance like a fairy princess,
bestowing happiness with my wand.
There would be pure wonder and joy
as I looked at life through her eyes,
the eyes of a child.
