My dearest one,

Have I done right by you? To that which is all knowing, I pray.

You come to me still, with a baby look in your eyes,

and a catch in your breath-

as though the all knowing is me.

You’re so wise for your youth, and emotionally strong;

I forget that you are-

like the forces of nature-

vulnerable sometimes.

And I wish I were the all knowing for you.

I wish I could offer you better than my best.
