for my son's college lacrosse team
he's one of the captains of the team
once around the neck as tight or loose as you like
then the ends beautifully folded over one another
and left to dangle, pretty like
was thrilled exclaiming "they're just my color!"
as she wrapped the necklace around her
i thought to myself - what a perfect fit
my son won the coaches award
for character, integrity and sportsmanship
at the luncheon that day
the smile on mine and my husbands faces
the pride and love for our son
glowing all shiny like
life in all it's unexpected excitement
being the best kind of sparkly of all...
p.s. please excuse the random spacing gaffs - blogger and i were having difficulty agreeing on how this post should go. blogger won.
