holding

can’t write much

arms full

holding

holding

holding

stories in my head

will stay there

until her stomach expands

little fingers grow

neck muscles strengthen

and she figures she’ll make it in this world

until then we’ll breathe each other in

both of us surviving

and

holding

We think she smiled her first “real” smile at her daddy. (This isn’t it, but I thought it was a cute shot).
