Little Angel

You are not broken.
My eyes see only your beauty.
Little Angel, child of God,
You have been wonderfully made.

Do not lament your lack of color,
Or compare yourself to daffodils.
All the best photographers know
The art of contrast found in black and white;
You are all colors: in you, perfect light.

If you are tired, take no shame in rest.
Smell the flowers, feel the warm spring sun.
And if you are still too hurt to walk,
Little Angel, you can fly.
