To my Newborn Daughter

Gentle evening light
amid the drawn white curtains
bends to kiss your cheek
and lingers
softly on closed eyelids.
You squeak
a muffled sigh
and stretch your sleepy fingers
They curl over one of mine.
In the stillness of the night
beneath the drawn white curtains
I bend to kiss your cheek
and linger.
