you now live in the warmest, most balanced water that exists.
soon you will be plunged into the ocean of this world
and all we wish is that you remember how to breathe
as you once did, inside the beginning of all our being-ness.
This poem was custom written by a poet at our good friends’ wedding. The author asked what we wished for when when it came to the life of our child… the word that came to mind was “balance”.
