Poem: The Mystery

This can also be found in MotherVerse, Issue #6, Spring '07

The Mystery

The boy in dreams
Is my son

My daughter's brother
Whom she will never know

And the son of her father
Who knows neither.

So it is.

The boy in the dreams
Is young-

What I'd imagine him to be:
Only 4 or 3.

He is my son
I must give up.

So it was.

The boy in the dreams
He comes without animosity or aversion-
Regret not felt from either side.

He is my son
I must always give up to the mystery.

So it will be.
