One more push,
one more step.
The shadows fade
and there is only a point of light
left in the horizon.

That is enough.

There is a mole on my son's back.
It is on the back of his neck, on the right side,
just below his ear.
The hair on his nape follows a pattern
down to his back.
When he is playing,
intent, focused, unflappable,
I need only to see that mole.

It is enough.
