What will I say?……

i loved you before you were even created
because in love – you already were

beyond an idea – the idea of conceptualization
blue print ideals – worries

your name was chosen to help create an identity
borne from a familial – landscape – guidance plan

there’s been conversations and arguments – already had
songs sang around the crib – a series of momentous dances – toe tapped

i love you because of your mother
because unless God said otherwise – our love had to step outside – within

circular –

first child – only child – middle child …..
boy or girl

you are already and will always be
beyond deep conversations or discipline or expectations…..

know this love
– know i will always be amazed….
