She said I reminded her of Snow White.
The dark curls
the blue eyes
and the red lips against pale skin.
Initially, I thought she was romanticising
as all new mothers are wont to do.
The newborn baby girl,
desperately wanted after the arrival of two rambunctious boys.
The utter perfection of a new life.
Somehow mere words cannot express
the beauty that is found in such an arrival.
But then she showed me
and it was as she said.
The hair, the eyes, the mouth, the skin
and the nickname stuck.
*This is not a new piece. I first posted this two years ago but I was reminded of it and it made me smile so here it is again.
