how do people get through life.
ups and downs,
these are minor.

i wake him by kissing him on the lips-
he always smiles
and makes a little noise.
every day this makes me happy.

but i can't compete with his mom
and the family out east.
they pull him back.
they want his hand.
i feel like releasing
and walking away.

i can wait.
but only for so long.
i am tired.
my patience is wearing thin.

i'm treading water again
waiting for life to begin.
