The best part of today is you

Today I got lost in your laughter.
It's all I could hear and all I could see.
It looked like a melody, and it felt like bliss.

Today I held you in front of the mirror.
I smiled at your smile, and you smiled at mine.
It looked like sunshine, and it felt like love.

Today I was loved unconditionally.
Little hands in mine that didn't let go.
It looked like warmth, and it felt like joy.

Today I watched you play with your baby sister.
Gentle hands showing her what to do.
It looked like wonder, and it felt like awe.

Today I'm feeling extra grateful.
For a little girl who whispers I love you {and screams it too}.
She looks like beautiful, and she feels like you.
