remembering the superprincess...

on what would have been her fifth birthday...



(click on image to enlarge)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUPERPRINCESS!!!





she looked up
rarely down...
rarely with feet planted
upon the ground.

feet that wiggled
feet that danced
feet that toddled
feet that pranced...

feet that jumped
feet that grew
feet that ran
feet that flew...

ava's feet were created
for so much more.
they were created
so that she could soar...

soar, ava, soar!!!

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Dani, this is just beautiful.
I've been up since 4:30 this morning....reading blogs from your site. My heart goes out to all of the parents who have lost a child. It's unbearable to think of what it would be like. Bless you for your kindness.
Where did you find this poem?

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. Your poem is simply beautiful. As I read, I imagined Ava's feet in her spottys.
Thankyou again :)

You are such a beautiful soul Dani-that poem was gorgeous.

Thinking of Sheye and her family on such a special day. Because of them we love harder, squeeze tighter, and try to take nothing for granted.

Lots of love

This is so heartbreaking. I have so much love for those poor brave parents who lose a child. She was such a beautiful little girl. I hope her family are able to find comfort on what would have been her fifth birthday.

That's really lovely Dani.

Little Sweethearts said...

That's such a beautiful poem Dani. Maybe we should start an Ava Poets Society, since this girls inspires so many of us to write a poem.

Love,
