To O

You are already better than me –

 

More adaptable,

flowing with the constant change of

swaddles, sleep sacks, breast, bottle.

 

More tolerant,

accepting my fumbling attempts

as I learn to parent you.

 

More trusting,

gazing at me with those navy blue

eyes as I try to offer you comfort.

 

You are already better than me.

 

And that is my constant hope.
