For Nora Elizabeth: I saw you today
by Christine Grothe

I saw you today
in the eyes of a newborn baby
being gently rocked by her mother
I saw you today
in the smile of a little girl
with brown ringlets
reaching out to touch the ducks
I saw you today
in the tears of your sister
who longs to play with you
and teach you the world
I saw you today
in the still of the cemetery
as I sat there weeping and touching your name
not wanting to believe that you are there.
