Jeremiah

Updated on June 18, 2013

I'm wild, free hearted and rebellious,
but with you I proceed with caution.
I'm afraid of you jumping too high
or falling too hard.
Screaming "Play in the grass,
stay out the streets
and stay close
to me!"

You can't go more than
two yards away.
I'll run 'till I'm tired,
I'm chasing tiny feet.
I live to see you smiling,
your cry hurts me more
than the reasons you cry hurt you.
I will protect your little body with my life.
I won't ever leave you.

I am inspired by the curiosity
I see in your big, bold eyes.
I remember when you first
called my name and I knew love.
I remember when I first held you
and I learned fear.

I was afraid to mess up
the most beautiful bond
I'd ever felt.

I'm so glad you love me.
Perfect you
and imperfect, crazy me.

Drunk at night,
reckless as hell
and I hope u never touch a bottle
that isn't marked Deer Park.
Your auntie has demons she fights
and I'm only attacked while we're apart.
With you standing beside me
short and sweet,
I'm invincible.
I'm living my dreams
within you.
Kid, I see poetry in you.

I'd never ever neglect you.
So please excuse me when
I'm feeling frustrated.
I don't love you any less,
some emotions are just
hard explaining.
As we grow older,
We will teach each other.
I learn from you all the time.
I find my deepest comfort
with your body in my arms.

I adore you,
my tiny ray of sunshine
and you just keep getting brighter.
