I Am

I am a generous girl who likes to read.
I wonder if someone will ever create the flying pill.
I hear lines from stories tumble around in my head.
I see people creating great things.
I want to be able to fly.
I am a generous girl who likes to read.

I pretend I am the smartest scientist ever.
I feel people hugging me lovingly.
I worry if someone else in my family will die.
I cry when I remember Max.
I am a generous girl who likes to read.

I understand that death is as natural as birth.
I say everyone is equal.
I dream about my life in the past, present and future.
I try to be helpful.
I hope no one else in my family will die.
I am a generous girl who likes to read.

I see YOU creating great things... I am so proud of you.
I cry when I remember Max, too. He is so very special in our lives.

Deb - this is definitely one of my favorite "deb" photos of Hannah. She comes thru in B&W and color in such a way that is so true to her spirit. Thank you.
