two years ago today.

she would not believe

that the child

she bore seven

weeks before her due date

is as healthy

as you are.

she would not believe that

her child

talks as much as

she once did.

she would not believe

that her child

climbs everything she encounters.

she would not believe

how much you

resemble her

(in almost every way imaginable).

she would be proud of

what you’ve become.

she would be proud of

what i’ve become.

she would not

believe how far

we

have come.

and she would be

proud of this

as you slept the

other night,

i read a line

from this book i’ve

been reading…

“no one is truly dead, until they are no longer loved.”

sounds about right.

because there’s so much

love for

your mom,

now and forever.

and because of

our love for her,

we not only exist,

but so does

she.
