Beautiful Boy

Darling baby boy with the big brown eyes and the soft brown hair, come rest upon my shoulder and sleep sleep sleep, slow and sweet and eternal forever. Sleep against your precious grandmothersistermotherlover's shoulder and let me kiss your sweet forehead and sweet eyelids and bite and tear and bring you into this world.

Bury you down deep among the jasmines and the lillies and the worms until you rise and be mine forever ever ever, sweet baby boy who doesn't remember his name, which I know and I keep buried in a locket in my heart forever. Dearest boy.
