A friend of mine has a son that came to her through marriage who is particularly attached in a very special way. This is about them, but something is missing. I don't know if it's too cryptic or vague in an attempt to be poetic, or if it's something else. It started out as prose, but seemed to make a better poem. Help!
He follows you like an echo,
not attached, but always close.
Arms in your circle,
head on your hip,
he claims a mother he doesnít own.
He wears your soft colors,
matching outfits bought apart.
Watching through blue sparkle,
under soft wheat,
he inherits across hearts rather hand blood.
He learned your gentle way,
where quiet smiles crown light touches,
in bloom and rock,
fragrant and constant,
knowing love in patient hours.
He came as a wedding gift, partial orphan,
your husbandís child,
son but not son,
yours, but not your own,
finding his mother blessed among women.
