you’ve always…

you’ve always been like this
steadfast
and
peaceful
like you knew answers
before they were
hatched
like you were ready
far ahead of time
and were waiting for the rest of us

you’ve always had this heart
that beats strong and loud
through your shoestring ribcage
as if it would climb right out
of you and have a life of it’s own

you’ve always been mine
since I began
since you were considered
since air first breathed
into the cells
that make us
human.
