"If I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
toward those isles of yours that wait for me."
The joy of being your mother was one that I did not know a human being could experience. Your sweet soul and the endless possibilities of our life together taught me what it meant to dream, what it meant to be selfless, what it meant for magic to still exist in this world. There will not be a day that passes where I do not think about the sweetness of your presence, my precious daughter. Now and forever I will be your mother, and you, my little love, will always be my baby. Thank you for choosing me, my peony.
