Girl of Mine

my bones ache
when I look at you
see you laughing
or see you with your
beautiful neck turned awkward
and the veins pulse
as you sleep
it takes me back
to think you grew
inside me so perfect
my best accomplishment
I gasp as you 
read to me
your voice bouncy
and curious
makes me beam
my chest fills so
full with pride
that it aches in the middle
where my ribs meet
and the small gestures
that define you
naive questions
or that head strong snarl
the need for space
that i recognize
or the way you ponder
the this and that
of things
make my bones ache
when i look at you
