A poem for the premature lamb

Timing 5/23/17

My heart was with your heart

                                                (Beat-beat)

As I dried your

Tiny curls,

                                                (Beat-beat)

Wrapped you in my

Fleece,

                                                (Beat-beat)

Called to you in your

Saline dream,

                                                (Beat-beat)

Willed your chest to

Rise

                                                (Beat-beat)

And fall.

                                                (Beat-beat)

 

I cried over your still

                                                (Beat)

Perfection,

                                                (beat)

Gave you the Breath

                                                (Beat)

Of Life,

                                                (beat)

A gift you refused.

 

My heart was with your heart.

My lips touched yours,

The saline undertow

                                                (beat)

Stronger than your

Lungs,

Stronger than my

Will,

Death

                                                (Beat)

Stronger

Than

Life.

 

My heart was with your heart

And then

 

                                                It beat

 

Alone.
