And a Song

The poem is here now:

And now I wonder what ever happened
How did we end this way?
What could I have done differently?
Would you have made different choices?

Before you were ever born I loved you
And I cherished you as you grew
We danced and played and sang and
I spent so much time away working
so much time spent in the downward spiral

I loved to watch you—the funniest things you would do
I loved to watch you—how you grew, how very smart you were
I loved to watch you—in the becoming you shew so much promise
I loved to stare into your eyes—to study the iris
Of first your right and then your left eyes
You have always known how to make me cry

And now I wonder what I ever did
That made all of this just happen
Could I have made different choices?
Would you have done anything differently?

Before you were born I was a mad man
I Was proud I was pompous and arrogant
I sang and laughed and danced and
I spent so much time waiting for you to come out
(I loved the baby inside the mama!)
So much time dripping by like condensate of misty fog

I loved to watch you—the funniest things you would do
I loved to watch you—how you grew, how very smart you were
I loved to watch you—in the becoming you shew so much promise
I loved to stare into your eyes—to study the iris
Of first your right and then your left eyes
You have always known how to cut into me

And now I know that all I’ve ever done
Was to make you need to run
The way I accepted you completely
The way you have always wanted to shock me
(Although, you should know by now that you can’t)

And now I wonder how I ever let it come to be
That I would arm you, set you poised, then become the target
And watch the iris of first your right and then your left eyes
As you sink home the truth that you really don’t care
You have always known how to rip me, and you have never held it back

Before you became this apparition I adored you (and I still do)
Before I became the intention of the thrust
Before, we weren’t so much different
Before.

Yet now love, I look hard at the iris,
Of first the left
And then of the right
I see now only steely, crackly, electric intensity
And now I wonder if we’ll ever get past this point
I miss you so
I love you
Daughter!
