Mimi, meet your great granddaughter, Kaylee, you said
as if the words meant something through the roar in my ears--
all the dreams realized and not, it all comes to this one miracle placed in my arms.
In my teary blindness I reach out for her, feel her first,her precious body light as a feather, I know she looks at me.
I want to see my great granddaughter’s eyes, that’s where connection is made.
The tears fade but not the catch in my throat as I finally seethis perfect little face, ears, rosebud lips, huge blue eyes,
my Kaylee D, mine, my grandchild, my beautiful miracle
I readjust you as I sit and see that I am given the world in my arms.
