A gift

I was amazed
when my brother’s girlfriend gave me
this gift last week:

It depicts the first moment
I held

one of my favorite pictures,
one of my favorite moments.

Larissa has only known me
“after Malou”
but I am so grateful
that she remembers her with love too.

I couldn’t put it better than Larissa herself
in the inscription on the back:

Malou is forever loved
and never forgotten.

Thank you, Larissa,
for this gorgeous painting,
which we will treasure forever.
