Favorite Quote:

Her eyes shine.
She's so young, however, as safe-
and not make a mistake.
Her feet touch the ground.
Not completely, but touch.
And not all at once, there is a precision to her art form.
Toes first metatarsal and then finally the sole.
But it is a lie, you like being on your toes.
This is what makes you like me.
But you're young, innocent, intelligent, strong and I am not.
And do not miss the way you dance in your pajamas preparing for school.
You are my small ballerina, always remember that,
I love you like a thousand splendid suns.
To the moon and back.
I see a lot of me in you, is like looking into a mirror .
Do not let them take your spunk away.
When you feel sad, do not forget you can get to my hand
When you feel bad remember ...
I will not let you go
When broken down, when in poor condition
Do not fall into temptation ..
No, do not give up
When I said always, I meant forever ...
And I will not disappoint you, you can always find me, and I'm always around

This peice I wrote for my 4yr old cousin Ellie. It is orginially in Spanish for my school's poetry night. Part of it I am talking to her and the other part I am talking about her or observing her
