Day 266

Today we celebrated my lovely friends daughter Mia’s first angel birthday. I wrote this poem for them.


Mia Mia Ballerina

It’s been one year since your earthly presence

You came to bless your parents

You sent them so much love

You came to show them how strong they are

You came to dance through their lives forever


Mia Mia Ballerina

You are one of a kind

I know you feel the love from your parents

For they have shown it each day since you left

Caring for so many

Being a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on

The terrible jokes your daddy makes

They put a smile on many a face

The nurturing care your mother gives

So freely to those who are in need


Mia Mia Ballerina

Your pretty face is captured in time

A beautiful painting on the wall

You will be remembered

We have been blessed to meet your spirit


Mia Mia Ballerina

Your mummy and daddy will celebrate you

They will live in your honour

They will share your love with all

While many tears will still be shed

Memories of  you will be cherished always

Moments with you never forgotten


We sat around the campfire under the stars and I read the poem out. I could feel so much love emanating from everyone in the circle. It was a special day and night. I know Hamish and Mia would have been up there having their own party.
