All I Have Ever Needed

When I was a baby I looked at you as if you were the sky

I grew a little and looked at you like a princess

 

I grew a little more and discovered that you were a queen

 

The goddess of yoga, mid-morning hikes in the dewy air

 

Always packing an extra apple in case I forgot mine

 

The way I looked at you has taught me everything

 

Even when you began to shatter

 

My beautiful stargazer lily

 

My sparkling dream of a mother

 

You have given me everything

 

And if I were stranded somewhere 

 

You would be the person to make getting lost a beautiful thing

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
