thirty one.
i promise to always
keep the magic spinning
in your childhood.
to surprise you with
absurd amounts of bubbles
in your bubble baths,
to take you on mystery outings
that lead to
seaside treasure hunts for shells,
or the best toy store.
to frosted cupcakes
with sprinkles
for no other reason than
a rainy Tuesday,
to cheering loudly
at your achievements of,
well, really anything,
to building forts and camping out
in the lounge room,
to cutting your sandwiches
in exactly 5 pieces
just the way you like,
to photographing
each curve and freckle and line of
your tiny faces
so that I can reflect back to you
the wonder and light in your smiles,
and all that magic
that I see within you.
