the world is her stage.

"at my birthday, i want to sing
and EVERYBODY will watch me.
i will stand on the grass
with my shoes
and it will be my stage."

what will you sing sweet abigail?

"i will sing dora and angelina ballerina."

how do those songs go?

"i don't want to tell you,
i will just do it for my friends."

do you know that everyone will sing
happy birthday to you
when you have your cake?

"yes. they will sing to me,
after i sing to them."

her birthday is tomorrow.
her party is thursday.
my little girl
is growing not so little anymore.
and something tells me shyness won't be her struggle in life.
