If You Tell Them Anything - April 27


If you tell them anything,

tell them we

laughed all the time

went on adventures

loved doing nothing with each other

were ok with fighting

because we always made up

went to Italy, Canada, Paris

the laundromat, the grocery store

together always


Tell them we loved our children

we met them where they were

and didn't mold them into things

they weren't


Tell them we made mistakes

we foundered

but we always found dry land

solid ground

because we never stopped moving


We made decisions

and if it was not the best choice

we made another


Tell them they always have choices.

The room they find themselves in always

has a door or a window

Never settle


Tell them they

matter

have value

are all here for a reason

are part of the earth

connected to nature and faraway stars

were once part of stars

and carry pieces of the universe behind their eyes


Tell them they are cosmic poems

written by infinity and eternity


They are part of fabric of it all


(Tell them to go with that.)
