Happy 8th Month Birthday, Baby!


unknowing yet wise,

miniature yet full of heart,

have done for me

what I have spent a lifetime

trying to do for myself.


You’ve lassoed time,

drawn it in,

and placed it in a bubble

of peace and contentment,

fixed in place

neither rolling back to the past

or forward to the future.


You have given me

the gift of the present,

where I’m now suspended

with you –

the past no longer

a prickly burr

holding me back,

and the future no longer

the momentum of my daily life.


Thanks to you,

the present

is all I need,

as long as I sit

in this bubble

with you.
