My daughter, dressed like a "princess ballerina"
Twirling and smiling and laughing
Her hair flowing in the Spring breeze
As she sings in her most beautiful way
She says, "Mommy, look at me!"
"I'm looking at you baby!"
"Watch me! Look AT me, mommy!"
"I'm looking. I'm watching you right here on this...screen."
I've been living life through a 3x5 screen.
Saving moments to a tiny memory drive
Instead of living IN these moments
Feeling these moments
Experiencing these moments
I should be watching this brilliant, beautiful child
Grow up in real life
I should be looking at my little girl
Not my little device
