Four Days

You existed for four days
Four days in my mind;
That most powerful device we own
It created you and there you will stay
Indefinite, delicate, intricately designed

In that time I imagined telling your father,
How he would hold you in his arms
Sit you on his knee and play piano
Teach you how to skate
We’d celebrate birthdays together

I wondered who’d you turn out to be
I’d knit you little hats with the bear ears
Read you my favourite childhood stories
Bake fairy cakes together
We’d watch as you’d play jovially with your cousins

It was just for four days,
Four days of reveries,
We never saw fruition of these dreams
We are now very separate people,
But I will always be grateful for that little infinity
