My Dear Boy

Into this world you were born

Through no fault of your own

And where I see shadows and lack of light

You delight to hear the call of owls

And where I had no use for life and all its woes,

This veil of tears became swept up by laughter

You asked me to smell the flowers

And I overcame my fear of blinding color.

You never asked for me,

Yet still you let me need you.

Thank you, child,

For your very being reminds me yet to breathe

With you I count the stars and make up stories

Where before I saw only absence, cold and distance

With you I know God’s love

My sapphire, my tulip

I will dig for you a garden

mine diamonds, gold and rubies

From the future.

This empty homes become a field where horses play.
