Who is That Child

who is that child

by your side

who is that child

 

is he the one I always wanted

is he the love part of you living on

born of another

         your love child

 

I want to know your son

I want to hold him close

I want to see how you would be

un-jaded

         un-afraid

         un-aware

before life got in the way

and made you say

that love

doesn’t exist

 

I miss you

I miss watching you breathe

the way you slept

your naked body, your damaged soul,

your tenderness when you forgot to hide the smile

that once made me whole

 

                   that look

 

the words you could never find

the love that poured from your eyes

straight into my shattered heart

 

who is that child

that walks like you

 

may I hold his tiny fingers in my hand?
