A Response to Birthday Letters

by Christina M. Hile


We came into the world together,

or at least I can no longer recall a world where there was an I without a you,

Your sorrow will always be my sorrow,

but do not think that there is land where I can exist,


apart from you.

How could there by joy any land deprived of your

curiously fey grin,

the music of your shy laughter,

the glow of your xanthous skin,

or the conviction of your embrace.

    Beautiful and sad. Great poem. The last line is particularly wonderful to me.
