The Settling of Stillness

I studied you everyday.
Your body, your smell, your cry, your feel.
All those days spent consuming you
Yet I've already forgotten.

I search
To feel you quietly near.

Dear Baby Allegra:

Happy Birthday.

We released pink balloons for you at the cemetery today. Were you somehow there? Levi wrote "How's your life in heaven?" on his balloon. I've spent the past 11 months wondering the same thing.

How is your life in heaven?

We miss you.

Your Mom

Dear Baby Allegra:

I loved you before I knew you.

I loved you here.

I love you still.

Your Mom
