I trace you
in quiet moments
of love and madness
in a language
beyond words
for thoughts collapse
when lips part
and a hidden speech flows
from your soul to mine

I beckon you
to dream
for within you, my love
the shine of a million diamonds
is waiting to gleam
the likes of what
death cannot touch
and life cannot flee

I treasure
your most aching parts
for even though
we have loved and lost
we still believe
in the sheer enormity
of our sacred beating hearts

I hold you
in tight embrace
for even as rain pours
your love soaks me
to my bones
without a warning
it often comes crashing
at the threshold
of my soul

I invite you
to come in and stay
for my universe expands
in encounters
like yours
where in just feeding
each others appetite
and caring, one finds oneself
cared for

so hold my hand
and lets chase cosmos
and the stars at play
as the Divine writes
our eternal fate
between me and you
beloved soul
love will always find a way

I remember when I first learned that my wife was pregnant.  I was stunned, scared, and in denial.  I could think of no way that this would work.  I was selfish, and still very much a boy (no matter what my biological age was then).  Never having had a father figure of any kind, I just couldn’t conceive that I could manage.  I was worried.  I didn’t know what to do.

The only experience I had with fathering was being the stepfather to my wife’s son.  He turned out to be a fine young man (that’s for another post), despite my attempts at fathering.

I remember when I learned that this new baby was going to be a girl.  I can…
