I greet you in the morning with a prayer
that you might be spared all pains
and all adversities and worries,
since I care for you with infinite protection,
wishing all I know a hundred years of health,
accomplishment, perfection and success
and nothing less than all the best;
but you stand out before the front line
in your delicacy and vulnerability,
having cried too much already in your days
and scoliosis being as a handicap no trifle.
The more I love you for not being able to
accomplish any absoluteness in our consummation,
leading to its being the more consummated
in our hearts and souls and arts instead,
projecting in the testimony of its beauty
further than to just the stars,
the finite universe and all infinity.
