Twenty-one

Twenty-one years ago there was a girl;
a girl with a break in her heart.
 
 
Twenty-one years ago a man-cub was born;
born to the girl with the break in her heart.
 
 
The first time the girl held him
something happened.
Something happened in that dark, quiet room;
just the two of them, in the middle of the night, looking into each other's eyes for the first time.

 
His eyes, so full with the knowledge of...
of everything.
She could see that he knew everything;
everything from the heavens to the break in her heart.

 
And then with an timid "hello" and a tear sliding down her cheek,
the break in her heart began to heal.

I know that feeling. Those baby boys do steal our hearts away. I found a plaque I bought which says:
"There is this boy, he sort of stole my heart. He calls me Mom"
