To Grams


you were the one

who was supposed to

love me


only love me


the one who

wrapped me

in soft arms


and made me feel

for just a moment

that I was safe


I didn’t realize

you were human

could make mistakes


say hurtful things


but then you did

and then you



but on that dreamy day

with the light

pouring in


and the sweet weight

of new life

nestled beside me


half asleep

half awake

there you were


smiling at me


you looked so beautiful

and I felt drenched in love

soaked from head to toe


as I smiled back

with my lips

and with my heart


at you
