My Grateful World

In the quiet of the moonlight,
stars twinkle bright,
capturing my gaze.
I feel so small under the canopy of stars,
but I am so big in your world.

Your tiny hand reaches for mine.
You gaze toward the sky.
A brief moment of quiet embraces us.
For a rare moment,
you are speechless.
I relish the quiet,
gulping it in as I breathe.

The moment passes,
the questions start again.
The endless chatter.
The music of your voice fills the night air.
You giggle over something you just said.
Oh, how magical that giggle is.

I smile.
The quiet was fleeting,
the chatter,
the giggles,
and those speechless moments,
all come together to fill my world.

My grateful world.
