Here they are

Nothing prepares you

For that moment.

Nothing you have seen

or thought or wondered about

any time before this.

No imagining of what it will feel like,

no reading of books

or listening to others

or learning from your own mother.

Or your own father.


And then your life, as you knew it

and lived it and wandered through it,

disappears. Just like that.

Because now, here they are.

They, who were within you and are now

just themselves. In this world.

But still yours.

That’s when it all changes.

And I feel so lucky to know that.
