lying in bed on this blustery winter morning
steaming coffee and the gentle breath of my boy
deep in dreamland
are my companions
he crawled in with me in the night
awakened by a dream of a momma elephant
abandoning her sick baby
he wants us to rescue all the babies
in these tender moments he is my baby
not the wild boy of the waking hours
my heart is cracked open
with love
