Inspired by John 17:3
Are you, like absent parent,
what I imagine in my heart,
sum opposite of all imperfection
I hold against mankind when I mutter,
my real family would never

Are you everything I hope,
everything I want you to be,
all that I can’t see and still live

Are you, like me, just who YOU ARE
outside of expectation,
aside from relation,
a person in your own right

One who waits and doesn’t press,
who wants not
to be projected upon,
but sought, discovered,
understood
