For a long time there were only your footprints & laughter in our dreams & even from such small things, we knew we could not wait to love you forever.
The first time his laughter unfurled its wings in the wind, we knew that the world would never be the same.
How old do you have to be to die? he said & I said I didn’t think anybody was ever old enough & that made sense to him since he was still new to the world & remembered how forever had been.
In my dream, he told me to hold the secret of his birth safe & teach him when he forgot.
