because I love you……….

I will remind you
of the ways I have held you
and nights
I spoke your name
a gift from God
your beauty –
spirit flame

beckoned as a nightbird
black against the sky
given life
– was breath
before you knew
found a way to be
the story starting now
when all seemed lost
He offered life
to you

asking not
the ways we came
or why the door ajar
of pieces scattered
broken (let me go)
but only this
the answer be
that we as love must trust
words that once
were written
to our soul

Author’s Note: This was written for my nephew – my light, my inspiration,
my soulmate – because I can – because I do.
