Home with you

It is a safe place

but also feels like a cage

I see you changing

I wonder why you speak so loudly

and say the things you say

Countless nights have I spent awake

and long drives have I spent absent minded

on little things you say

and little things you do

I do not want to lose you while we’re both still here

and you.

You are always tired

but will only admit it

when you’ve already reached your last strength

why are you so worried

about things you cannot change

you even insist you either will or have to die

I don’t want to lose you

while we’re both still here.

I want you to stay, but not become who you are becoming.

The heavens have sent me a note.

that it is okay

that we’ll be okay

But I still get scared

and irritated

when I have to repeat myself time and time again.

I prayed a prayer about the next generation

that I want them to be full grown before you go

But I know

nothing can be for sure

except that I don’t want to lose you.

But there is nothing I can do
