If there were words

I love you

i dreamt of you before you were

heart of my heart

breath of my breath

being from my being

i love you

in my womb I felt you swimming, and fluttering, and kicking against me

and as you grew I watched you

kicking, and fluttering, and finally, swimming away into a life of your own

 my little mermaid-fairy daughters

whose feet tread here upon the earth

whose days are marked by turning tides

who are counted among the stars that twinkle

 once upon a time you sang little swimmy songs

and rested your tiny fingers against me in the night

i love you

your mother

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
