The Girl

In these dim days, I have been looking for bits of joy. My ordinary life, has become even more ordinary. I have slowed, and looked and paid attention to all the small things in my day. Turns out I’ve been missing allot.

I had a little girl stop in my office with her Dad, she is about four. In moments we had a glorious visit together and I’m still smiling about it.

The Girl

In a moment she slipped into my world.

Her smile curious, as we greeted,

she asked my name, and I asked her’s.

And just like that, we were friends.

I complimented her aqua blue

princess earrings.

She told me they were clip-ons.

She said she liked my blue eyes, and my dark brown hair

I replied that her golden hair was beautiful.

She smiled.

We continued complimenting everything about one another,

until we floated.

Her shirt said, Wonder Woman

I asked if she was a superhero.

She told me, Yes.

As she turned to leave, I asked,

What are your superpowers?

With confidence she said, I can fly, and I’ll save everyone.

Yes, I believe you will, darling girl
