every time i thought
let’s savor this
moment we would never
make it to point b

he is motion
personified from eye opening
hello to the lazy “drunk”
slurs of his goodnights

caught in the
excitement
sentinel off guard
photos mostly blurred
buzzes unable to keep up

I stand awash in a
see of firsts
blessed both witness and
scribe for each singular triumph

shaken heads wonder
at this late in life choice
while I gasp and marvel
in all the ways this imperfect
me molds completely perfect
