bonded i have seen youplayingbuilding castlesin the sand thengleefully knocking them down. i have seen youlaughingscreaming atthe sudden freezeof ice-cream topplingfrom its perch. i have seen youcryingsobbing whena beloved hasbeen hurt senselessly. i can never escapethe light thatradiates fromyou slicingthrough mydarkness. i cannot runfast enough tobe separated fromthe brilliance thatreflects off ofyour joy. you are always there.                 Poem: © 2009 Terri Stewart Photo:  Christine Valters Paintner,http://abbeyofthearts.com/
