All I Have Ever Needed

When I was a baby I looked at you as if you were the sky

I grew a little and looked at you like a princess


I grew a little more and discovered that you were a queen


The goddess of yoga, mid-morning hikes in the dewy air


Always packing an extra apple in case I forgot mine


The way I looked at you has taught me everything


Even when you began to shatter


My beautiful stargazer lily


My sparkling dream of a mother


You have given me everything


And if I were stranded somewhere 


You would be the person to make getting lost a beautiful thing

My family
