Son of My Son...

The Tree of Life ...


Oh -- this rounded heart ...

You have made so well complete.

Your fragile sound

Of sweet, lyrical innocence

Tenders the eye

And renews the soul.

Son of my son,

You hold a bounding, encircling love

With such tiny, soft hands.

Smiling, you press your cheek to mine

And the adagio sings.

In these tenuous, fleeting of moments

Nothing shall ever be as humbling or joyous.

Such are the gifts

From the miracle of your life.
