Every day, you were someone different.

The first day of fourth grade,

the last day of high school,

in the zoo,

or wandering the woods.

I hold you,

or I try to,

this fractaling puzzle in my heart of instincts, fears, and memories.

I catch as many sunrises

as I can; I reach down to hand you the light

that is coming.
