maia's day

maia's day
at first i put five candles, but then marko said it didn't seem right, sadder somehow, a reminder of all the time that has passed without her. so one, a yellow one, the colour of stars in children's books, the sun, and the centre of daisy's. just one sitting there right in the middle, just as she does within me.

happy birthday to you, my little maia.

Happy Birthday to Maia, and sweet sweet wishes to you Tara. You're such a good mommy, tall all of your children. They all are lucky to have you.
