Ode To Matthew

Matthew...

Have I not seen you a thousand-thousand times?

Among every movie, picture, and greeting card, have I not stared into your eyes?

Did I not spend every waking hour and every sleepless night mentally creating that which I should deem more than perfect?

Now, seeing your tiny fingers and little toes, your turned up nose and pouty mouth...will I not cherish such a vision?

Are you not the object dreams are made of?

Surely finite spaces shall never hold thee...certainly every dream, of every child, is merely a smattering of what you were to be...

Shall my heart ever stop breaking knowing that you will never be completely mine...

And yet...had I never seen you...how much more empty my life shall have been...xo grandpa
