Piccola principessa

blond braids
bouncing as you run towards him
luminous smile on your face
he opens his arms
and catches you as you leap
laughing

he turns towards me
lays a kiss on your cheek
« meet my little princess »
I smile at you

shy, you hide your face against his chest
I still see the glint in your eyes
as you sneak a peek my way
curious

celebration
people drink and sing and dance
I come to you and extend my hand
you look at me
uncertain
then slowly reach for it

I beam
as your small fingers curve around mine
I hope I have found a sister
in this small Italian town
so far away from my own

for a moment I look up
nervous
and find him looking back
he winks, mischievous
and smiles softly at the blush shading my cheeks

the only encouragement I needed

flower crowns woven in our hair
merriment on our faces
we twirl together
dancing to the percussions of our heart
discovering each other

I bend down and sweep you off your feet
rewarded by your giggles
we join the other dancers
opening up a place for us to fit in
welcoming smiles and nods
makes me feel I am home

I hold you close
and silently thank God above
for this family He gave me
precious gifts I shall cherish forever
little princess, little sister
