For Our Bridget


Back in the chair
So proud and straight
The clouds move on
No more to wait
Bright 6 year old
So early aware 
The time, the years
The rain to bear
Clouds and storms 
Of wire and brace
Some highs, more lows
You had to face
Building toward
More teeth more bone
but the pain you had 
To endure alone
With all the crosses
Dark Days to see
Never losing once
That dignity
Your time has come 
The day is bright
You've earned all this 
With force and might
So our wee girl
With all that style
Can add to this
Your breathtaking smile 
Love to you
Our little one
So proud so happy
You see the sun
