My Child, on Your Leaving

The first words
I said to you
Without my womb
Between us
As you screamed
I held you tight,
“Tell me about it kid.”
The last words
I said to you
In a dream
The world was ending
Without illusion
Between us
As you were silent
I held you tight,
“Ok, here we go.”
I am glad
It has been
The two of us.
