She wasn’t here before.
I came first.
What happened in the world, happened to me.
There was a long stretch before her.
Then suddenly she was everything.
I became the sea to her boat, and she the sea to mine.
That’s how it is, you know.
One day you just become a parent,
Then whatever happens in the world, happens to your child.
But you? You definitely weren’t here before.
You happened to both of us.
You turned my baby into a big kid, and me into a juggler.
Like a mirror reflecting a mirror,
My baby holds my baby,
And I can see love for an eternity.
