Bellarina (a repost by request)
After seeing my daughter’s first dance recital of the year, I came home and told her how proud I am. She asked me to re-post a poem that I had written for her eight birthday. Here I am, the proudest Mommy ever. 🙂
For my precious 8-year-old daughter.. she brings dance light and joy, peace and shimmering laughter into my life.
Tinkling bells tickle my ear
The sweetest of laughter whenever you’re near
Eyes so black, diamonds sparkle within
Shining blessing on all with your beautiful grin
Innocence worn on your precious, dear face
Child-like and hopeful, full of God’s grace
My heart is filled when our hands are entwined
I long to hold yours forever, a treasure in mine.
Dancing through life, you twirl and spin
An angel that dances, God’s own heart to win
Dance Bella-rina, in life and in manner
God as your path-light, His love as your banner
