For Madison
Author: Catyrose


You place your tiny hand in mine
And gaze into my eyes
Love lights up your precious face

Suddenly you reach for me
Clasping little arms around my neck

You hold on close
You hold me tight

The scent of lavendar lingering in your hair
Your skin so soft against my cheek

We hold each other fast
You utter words so clear and true
I love you Na-Na
I really do

You hold on close
You hold me tight

A tear slides down my cheek
I ask myself where have I been?
Searching for a love so true
When all the while
It's been waiting
Right here for me in you

------- Author's Notes -------

I wrote this for my grandaughter, who means the world to me. She is a god-send and has shown me what it means to love unconditionally.
