The First Touch of Snow


It all begins
before we even know
it has begun.

The first flutter,
the first kick,
the first breath,
the first cry,
the first smile,
the first step
he takes when
he doesn’t reach back
for my hand.

They are not our possessions,
you know.

They are our companions
with whom we get to experience
all of our firsts

This time around
is for the memory.
