My Poems You & Me

You and Me

I hear you

I know you

I have walked in your shoes

I am walking with your feet

Your skin is my skin

I hold you

You hold yourself

I ask you

You ask yourself

We listen together

Our ancestors tell a story

of laughter from long ago

when we were all babies

alone swaddled in blankets

waiting for the breast

We watch as you move

I call out the signs

You give me your hand

We hold them together

and wave good bye
