Phoenix

hi, hi little embryo,
you have no idea how much you are wanted.
“anhelado”; longed for,
three positive tests, too good to be true.

I’m sure you felt the smiles, little embryo,
at the news of your existence.
life’s been a little rough recently,
yet what a beautiful new start.

a handful of days together, little embryo.
“good morning my darlings”, he whispered
and we started to weave secret golden cocoons,
otherwise known as plans.

goodbye then, little embryo,
through tears and blood you leave this chaotic place.
thank you for the joy,
our microscopic little love.

just a memory now, little embryo,
so short-lived.
I can’t help but wonder,
was this all just a magical myth
