it is true
I was created in you.
it is also true
that you were created for me.
I owned your voice
it was shaped and tuned to soothe me.
your arms were molded,
into a cradle to hold me, to rock me.
the scent of your body was the air,
perfumed for me to breathe.
during those early, dearest days
I did not dream that you had
a larger life which included me
for I had a life
which was only you.
happy birthday to the greatest of them all.
