I’ve felt you since I was a child,
That loneliness, and the solace in it.
The dark drapes over me, softly, every night.
I delight in my dreams, the possibilities…
I wince in the anxiety.
My favorite dance with you? The night I waited for my son to arrive.
You haven’t always been bad.
You’ve seen my tears,
Seen my joys,
Seen my true love and my true self.
Thank you for the delight in the darkness, the growth in the unseen.
