knitted love




thirty-five years ago
carefully selected yarn
bulging profile
yearning
my firstborn soon to arrive

a baby soft blanket
every stitch with you in mind
we had never met
but, i was already consumed
loving you

i never could complete the gift
transfered to a metal coat hanger
carefully
patiently waiting
not one purl to be lost

then yesterday
a dream reminded me
unfinished love
i now possessed the skill
to finish

too late to wrap you
still snowy white
ready to receive
prepared to love
completed
