What shall I call you?

What shall I say to you?

What spring shall come of a lifetime of winter?

What shall I call you?

My mouth cannot wrap around the words. My voice chokes on the syllables of a maternal calling.

How do I desire something I have never known?

How can I hold the expectation of a dying bird?

How can I look into your eyes and see my own?

My arms cannot hold your longing. My body shudders from prolonged contact.

What more can I do?
