Birthday Card to My Daughter

You came into the world without hesitation or pain,
certain that this is where you want to be.
Your mother hardly had time to move into the birthing room.
You came powerfully, quietly, brightly.
Your eyes were as wise and full of ancient grace
as they are today, radiating peace.
I knew I was blessed, and my heart broke with love.
Now you are just like that,
not one moment old, eternally You.
