i wonder

i imagine you will always wonder

exactly who your daddy was and if

he loved you with a heart as big as time.

when you look into the mirror and see

his eyes of cobalt looking back at you,

will you wonder at the strange foreigner

peering through time less ness at the lily?

and will you wonder how he could leave you

choosing instead his path of littered hearts

becoming a soul less along life's way?

Wondering: for National Poetry Month and the Writing Prompt of Poetic Asides (poetic form:  Big 10) and NaPoWriMo.

Dedicated to my nephew.

    With reassuring Love the questions are asked; but may take a life time to be answered.
