Born Again

You came on a winter night
When I felt your breath
My heart warmed
My baby.

You look at me
Wide eyes
Curl your fingers
Around my thumb

Your cries for two hours
For milk
Irritate me sometimes

I remind myself
I can’t expect
You to feed yourself now, can I?

Time is waterfalling
Already you are heavier
Outgrowing clothes

Always a beauty
Sometimes I see a ripple of myself
In you

Or maybe
That’s in my mind’s eye.
