Sophia

You have come down
gracefully
from the heavens
to keep us together
and it tears us
apart
every time he grabs you
away
even for the tiny moments
of everyday.

We have learned to laugh
the way you do
unwary
that it could be shortlived.
It puzzles me
how your young mind
made more sense.

You have showed us to be brave
and fight
the pains that multiplied
by the thousands -
grandma’s illness,
mommy’s hurts,
and my emptiness.
You held us all with your
tiny hands
and little by little
we heal.
I know you did it,
but I can hear you say,
“No, YOU did! ”

Oh tender heart,
pure soul
I’m pretty sure
you are an angel
in disguise of a
girl.
'Don't grow up too soon, '
I whisper.
Your grin tells me
I'm being silly.

You already did -
outgrow us all.
