3x5xSavannah


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
