Little Wonder

Sweet and quiet one

who is always in her own world,

and you cannot help but watch her be.

You wonder what she is thinking,

behind those big, glassy brown eyes.

You wonder how you can communicate with her

and make her laugh or smile.

She is serene.

She is captivating;

to all who watch her and wonder.

This little girl at one of the Child Development Center holds a special place in my heart. Perhaps it’s because she had heart surgery not too long ago and I can relate. Perhaps it’s because I know she’ll need another surgery in a couple of years. Perhaps it’s simply the way she walks, with a slight adorable tilt, and the way she moves to her own groove in all that she does. I just love watching her and am mesmerized by her strength.
