Little One

In my heart of hearts
my child
I know you await me
cossetted safe with
the soft, sweet cavern
of your mother’s womb.
I am coming
drawn to you
as an aged baboon
reaches across the divide
to nestle and groom
an infant ape’s soft fur.
You are a mystery,
a new wonder
to behold and nourish.
To raise
alongside your parents.
The day will come
when I finally
wrap my arms about you.
My fate is tied to yours
as you grow,
nurtured in the love
of multi-generations.
