On Your Birthday

When you first opened your eyes,
The moment before I blinked
With vista full of tears,
I thought I saw
The galaxy swirling.
That a universe so incomprehensibly vast
Could be confined to such small vessels.

As hopes and
Dreams and
Wishes and
Prayers
All shot by at over eleven million miles per minute.

As you became,
I became something new under sun and moon.

Hope fulfilled.
More than dreams imagined.
Wishes turned truth.
Prayers answered
With a soft cry pushed into being by tiny lungs.

Miracles.

I thought I saw the galaxy be born.
I believe I heard the voice of God.

one

small

seed

.

sprouted
within two souls,

burst through
the earth into possibilities.

has ignited
two hearts in chorus

to say,
“proud rock, please move from here”

.

now
that once small seed has
grown

and a new bloom takes surprising shape

now
a new seed is
planted

and
with eager delight
we
wait
