Do you remember


do you remember
when we 
sat upon
the warm sea wall

and you took my hand
and whispered 

everything would
be okay

tomorrow

and I said

but what about 

today

and leaned 
into your warmth

with the sun beginning
to give way
to
 night 

and darkness


can you 
come back
to me

so I can hear 
your voice
one more time

that everything 
will be okay

missing the mom gene
