He amazes me.
I'm so fiercely proud of who he is.
Who he's becoming.
If I've done nothing else right in my life,
I've done this well.
If I have no other purpose,
no other true love in store...
this would be enough.
More than enough.
I stand in the doorway and
look through the dark as he sleeps.
I walk down the stairs and into my evening,
knowing that the fit of this puzzle piece is so perfect,
the scattered rest don't so much matter.
Let the edges be blurry, the grand design a haze.
I can see what counts.
These green eyes are dry, clear, and wide open.
