A Somber Face

A child's solemn, somber face. Posted by Picasa
You don't remember
I'll never forget
That magic day
When we first met
The somber face
I always knew
The little smile
The little you
~ Author Unknown
Nyssa loved to smile for the camera, but not this day. Her somber, solemn face sports no smile; and her eyes, darker than usual, seem to be lost in deep thought one minute, and piercing the core of my heart the next. She has always felt emotion deeply.

My sweet child, my only child, now grown, I want a life full of love and laughter for you with only a sprinkling of the sadness that cannot be avoided. If I could I would take all your sorrows away, for today, for forever. But sorrow teaches us to relish the laughter, pain helps us appreciate our blessings and through our tears we learn empathy for others and how to find our way back to joy. Sorrow and joy together make you a whole person, a wonderful young woman, the daughter I'll always love.
