For Annabel

You are an element of my body
Progeny of my soul
The core of my being
I look at you and lose sight of myself
My child, my sweet Annabel

A gift from the Invincible One
The only One
That can hold time and space
And bring forth an existence

What a miraculous fulfilment
A grace so beautiful
So overwhelming, so unbelievable
A gift so intense and so perfect
