Mirror, Mirror

Little one,
who mirrors me,
do you see how you make me feel?

Little one,
who mirrors me,
do you see how your smile lights up my world?

Little one,
who mirrors her,
did you know she prayed for 20 simple things.
Just 10 little fingers and 10 little toes.

Little one,
who mirrors her,
did you know when she speaks of miracles,
it’s you she speaks of?
