Intended Child

intended child

The intended child born of great story

Marital fiction sprinkled with good looks

Welcome to the new age of genetic folklore

Raised in proper and pressed dresses that stand in stiff form

Opinion was taught and told in stern

Dear child do as I say, not as I do

Freedom of thoughts are told to stand in the corner or shown the door

The intended child came as such a disappointment

So full of life

Not part of the familial order

A mind and soul, values and beliefs, something the off spring were never to be shown

The intended child such a shameful face of the perfect lineage

The wax families personal disgrace

A little girl who was supposed to listen because of the nobility of her last name

Perhaps when they decided to step on her spirit

Is slightly more to blame

I Will Be Here

promise

Little soul

We arrive in this world as we were meant to be

Open and free

Loved

My eyes rested on tiny, beautiful you and I fell in love for the first time

In that moment I knew, I understood

This was love, it is what we are built to be and do

All of this, is all of you

Such delicate teaching

Your little hand rested in mine

Snap shots of forever

So deeply imprinted in my heart, inhaled and exhaled in every breath no matter the time or space

Your pure being and all the blessings you bring to me

The harshness of life so hard to understand

My heart not always able to make sense of and protect my most precious dreams

If I can’t do this for you, how can I do this for me?

My heart visits the day you were born and how you taught me about love

My faith is kept in that tiny hand I held, knowing no matter what life brings it always lives in you and me

Life will come with hurt, sadness and so much we will fail to understand

So much hard that it can stray you from who you are

For you my little girl, when the times comes

When you need me most

When life has made you feel lost from your true being and authentic self

My promise to you

I will be here to hold your hand

To remind you that the love you were born with is who you are

It is always there, never left and will always burn strong

I hold it in my heart in a precious place that I keep safe and warm

As you taught me the day your were born

It is always love that will set us free
