Piece of Me
Photo By: Sonyo Estavillo

Hold you against me

Closing my eyes to your breath

Small life in my arms

One half piece of me in you

Swallowed up by sleep

You are safe from the outside

Baby, be at peace

I would die to keep you safe

    Another good poem inspired by her, I can’t believe she’s gotten so big since that picture! πŸ™‚

      Growing up too fast. If I can bottle up this moment where she is this small & keep this moment alive forever…I suppose that’s what photos and poetry is for. πŸ™‚
