The Empathy of Children

Even in the closeness of winter

here in this time –


in this place –


you have no idea how

honored I am to regarded

as your father –

You are the gift of myself

and your mother

we have given you everything

And yet it is you

Who gives me Life

for I am a galaxy of

of you  – for you.

No other bond

remains / .
