Be still, my heart

Never would I thought the day

would come that you and I would be

laying on the floor in our new house.

No air conditioner, no electric, no running water.

But with that, comes no complaints.

You are enjoying running throughout

new house and exploring everything.

Our bodies lay next to each other on our new floor

with wind whistling through the windows.

With faint train noises, in the background.

It’s just you and I.

Our breathing in sync, our eyes locked,

taking in each and every precious moment.

I hoped this moment would last forever,

a smile broke on on my face, as I was truly living.

The words “you’re silly mommy”┬ácame out of your mouth,

and for a moment, I got lost in the world of you.

I love you, my sweet Brielle.
