Dear Uraeus #9

I don't remember what I was thinking at 12
Maybe boys, maybe math
Surely in the swirl of my insecurities, the lot of them

Not as centered as you
Not at 12
Where did the time go?
Where did my baby go?
My little baby

Who needed me to help him walk, eat, run, ride

You are salt to this world
To my world
To our world
All of us

Salt we did not know we were hungry for

I don't expect you to understand this right now
Not right now
Soon though

There is never distance between us
Never time
Never space
Never lies
Never loss

Only love
Only everything I can ever have to give

To you
