I miss you

27 Apr

you’d love them now

their messy hair standing straight, knotted in

a million ways, as mine did, brushing

their eyes.

shirts covered in peanut butter,

milk, the evidence of backyards.

you’d love them now. You’d love

how they move, how they’ve gone from

teetering to strong, stubby legs

sure of their path. Hands grasping

outwards seeking tomorrow and

crackers.

They are just like me. Their mouths

talk like me, their eyes, soft like me but

brown instead of never make up my mind

hazel. They are

stronger, as you were.

They remind me of you Mom, your simple

touches, your regal bearing your

dripping loveliness. They look

good in the blues you loved.

you’d love them.
