To my Bestfriend's Baby


My best friend's new-born baby,

One day you'd grow up 

And I would tell you

That the hypothetical you were mentioned and empathized with as we teased your mother while we were in college

That I jumped out of bed when your mother shared the best 'good news' in the history of good news

That I loved the way she would glow like the morning sun while she was both her and you

That your first photograph had me in tears that flow when the eyes do try to smile

That just the memory of your tiny, pink face is enough to light mine up like a firefly glowing in the dark

That I will, forever, be nicer-than-usual with people who have the same name as yours

And as you go through life you might forget all of what I might have to say

But promise me, my sweet little child, that you will always remember the one thing that goes without saying:

I love you.

-Aunt Mona
