most important role

by thankfeldenkrais

As a boy with more asked of him than what seems fair,
With brain injury dictating his present,
And threatening his future,
His most important role to date,
Transcending the acquisition of any gross or fine motor skill,
Arrives,
Pink faced,
Squishy,
Screaming healthily,
More beautiful than words,
Delivering instantaneous mutual adoration,
Love and curiosity,

Bestowing on him the proudest of titles,
That of big brother.
