When I first posted this picture
I had no idea today would happen.
No clue that a little bump on your eyelid two days ago
was an early sign of a fast-approaching
bump in the road.
This morning, the word “surgery”
fell out of your doctor’s mouth in slow motion
like an unfunny joke.
And though I know you’ll be just fine
and won’t even know what happened,
I still wish I could take it all away,
kick worry to the curb
and make you better with only my love.
