Island Girl

My heart has been taken by an island girl.
She's got big brown eyes, so timid yet they are wide and full of life.
Her 2nd birthday is in July. 
My fingers want to play with her tight, dark curls, my hands want to cradle her small head.
Her skin is kissed by the sun, her smile shines brighter than the day itself.
She has absolutely no idea how much I love her, or how the thought of her haunts me.
Somehow I know that her long baby fingers will grasp mine, that she will know she belongs.
I love her before I even know her--yet I know she is perfect.
My heart has been taken by an island girl.
And I don't even want it back.


  1. Well that is perfectly perfect!! You made me cry! However, she will only be two in July. :)

    1. Aw, thank you :) I'll make sure to change her age. I wasn't sure if she was going to be 2 or 3 :)
