Christmas present

I told him I didn’t want anything
so he gave me poems

words chosen so carefully
I read them
as though the paper itself
might break

when did he find the time
to stitch the alphabet
into his heart
and out again

I read them slowly
not wanting them to end

knowing I will never be able
to write a poem
true enough
to thank him.
