I love you, my child.
Let us play today.
Let me watch you run along the sand,
daring the sea to catch your footprints
and fill them with foam.
Let us dangle our feet in a pond and splash the fishes.
Or roll in fields of daffodils.
Come to my bounty,
for I so love to create beauty for you.
I thrill when you pirouette in wildflowers
or lay in the grass,
painting faces on the clouds.
Let's take out our dolls and play dress-up.
Let's take out our crayons and color outside the lines.
Let's chase the wind with kites and bubbles.
Let's eat ice cream for dinner.
Bring to me your childlike heart
that I may tickle it with kisses.
Open your tiny hand
and show me the galaxies
that you have collected.
Toss the twinkling stars
upon the warm-washed sands,
and we shall dance with the starfish
in the Milky Way.
Come to me as a little child,
and I shall shower upon
your precious, pink, beloved soul,
the magical enchantment of the Universe.
