The Lost Man

If I could give you something priceless for Christmas

it would be to hold yourself 

the way you want a woman to hold you. 

And be good to yourself that way. 

To tell yourself 

all the things you want to hear

from a woman. 

For those voices be your new voice. 

Your mom’s

All the things she didn’t say 

and the sweet things she did.
