Gold Toes in a Jaded Hand

she is so new
we can count the days
she wonders it seems
trying to get used to
being here
she is my niece
unknown to me still

even as I hold her feet
that are purer than gold
And more precious,
being of Life
They have not yet touched the earth
But I hope they tread lightly
with grace
when they do

and these hands of mine
May God Always Bless
and Fill with Ceaseless Blessings
and Loving Happy Miracles
and gratefulness to feel their weight
