Pure Joy

 

Pure Joy

Being a part of your nine month life

Now I am letting you go

As you go

Back to India with your parents

Just as my arms and back muscles told me early on

Strengthen yourselves –this boy is weighty!

Now the muscle called my heart

Is strengthening through the pain of saying good-bye

I will love you from a distance

No less than if you were still here

And perhaps pray for you more
