For Niko (April 5th poem)




So little but so strong
You throw your brother into
The air and laugh

You are silent
When others are crying
You are a rock
A tiny tiny shiny rock

And I want to grab you
Shake you make you
Promise me not to be
So strong so strong
Chocolate cherub child
Giggly gorgeous girl

You don’t have to know
Everything womanchild
Sometimes you can be wrong

Don’t grow up to take care
Don’t hide your feelings
Share
Don’t make yourself small
For anyone
Don’t be the rock
Others rely upon

You don’t have to be strong
And you don’t have to float and fly and flit
Away, you can stay
Present be here
Be fully YOU in every way
