... more lullabies for Maddi ...  

Grandma told Mami I'd be born  
under the light of a full moon    
That I'd make swirls in the Milky Way    
with just a swish of my spoon    
   
Now I pluck stars from above to make my black hair glow    
I blow kisses to the rain because they make the flowers grow    
Then I go rescue the lost little worms who move to slow    
   
I tickle the sun for making my skin chocolate brown    
Then I rearrange the stars in my hair to form a crown    
   
Papi says I'll go to Australia    
so Uncle D will teach me to surf    
He says I was a natural born swimmer    
right from birth    
   
Whether I'm swimming    
Or flying    
Or gliding on chutes    
Papi says I should always remember    
My African roots    
   
Mami says I've never been    
Little    
And don't walk the path called    
Girl    
Just keep my eyes and heart open    
While I mesmerize the world ...

Note: Less than 12 hours after "seeing" the now iconic "Fearless Girl" statue in NYC, my Maddi was born on Easter Sunday.  Her name Maddison is a derivation of Matthew.  
 
Matthew 19:14  
 
14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
