You are perfect in every single way.
I’m sorry, you were.
You were intelligent, athletic, worldly.
You were presidential.
I AM educated, strong, curious.
I AM a thinker. A planer.
You were yesterday.
I AM today, tomorrow and forevermore.
I used to run to you,
And then I ran from you.
And how does that feel?
Enjoy watching me leagues ahead,
As the track star falls behind me,
