We are all basically good.

Let me rush in

To hold you when

You cry

When all the world

Feels like it is caving

Inward upon you

Come bring your head

Into my embrace

Cry, wipe your tears

And little runny nose

On my shirt

Know I’m here

Always waiting to hold

And hug you

And hold me, when

I cry and become

Confused and angry

Anger is a cover for

The fear and frustration

We feel

Masking our loneliness

And insecurity

Love and kindness

Are what our deeper

Spirits crave

We are at peace in

One another’s embrace

My son, even as I falter

I love you



(This poem was written September 9, 2000 for Kailen)
