like a river flows

i share you more than i shared the other two
you are not alone mine
but you are mine just the same
i dreamed of you, quietly
kept you safe in my heart
in my hope
time and circumstance threatened to prevent you
to keep you from my arms
from sleeping on me for months as we huddled together to stay warm
from discovering a new world with me
from bringing out the world in him
you came into my life with a whimper
as i softly cried at your discovery
afraid of all that would change
having gotten everything i ever wanted
in you
