Embrace by Laura Botsford
The treasure of living in little moments
Where in wonder? I protested that I should live accordingly to that which can only be seen?
For I have witnessed miracles that can’t be explained; lived through moments where surely I feared that this eternal grace may die.
Fade from your bones and crumble in shards of splintered mirrors
I am promised a life far greater than I could dream of because I believed
That my caress is conceived in
My blessed friend, who tendered the broken in me when others did not
The lost and sighing
The unattended feeling blind the forgotten freed
That part in us that feared flying.
She is unafraid
Wished into being
Sovereign and sassy
Bold, gentle and classy
My future is in the face of your child,
Love them all well and give them the strength of a sea’s gracious tide
As she lives free
In a civil sort of wild
