Letters from a Young Father

Bibi Kosherova
Bibi Kosherovahas quotedlast year
You are not the first
The sun has kissed nor the last
But we will hold you and kiss you
Like the very first and the very last
No wind has blown through your hair
No ground has touched your feet
But you are in our every step
& all the air
You are still beyond time
But in our eyes you are already forever
Neither boy nor girl
We raise your tiny heart to the sun
& offer the promise of you to the sky
To the earth & to the wind
Let them bless those fresh first heartbeats
Those tiny knocks on our door
Born from courage
And the faith
Of this new soul called
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
When Life seems to turn against you
Be flattered
It’s Her way of showing
How much faith She has
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
If you pretend to be
The master of your heart
Then no matter how high the castle
You will only feel the depth of its moat
Davidhas quoted2 years ago
This is the name we look for
A name you could butter bread with
And sugar coffee
A name already so deeply baked into
The bones of our home
All we need
Is to listen for it
Princess Trbl
Princess Trblhas quoted2 years ago
She took my hand—pressed it against her chest
She was crying but I kept quiet
Slid my foot between hers
My knee cupped her bent leg
The sun set—the room slipped into near dark
The lights of the city against our skin
My lips on her shoulder I whispered
I’m scared
She nodded—That was enough
Princess Trbl
Princess Trblhas quoted2 years ago
No strength to take a deep breath
No desire to exhale
Just enough self-esteem to
Wash my face
Drag & drop your files (not more than 5 at once)
