i am new-born

i am new-born
i taste the world with my skin
wholly and directly,
without interpretation

i need your love,
hold me in your love.
hold me in your warmth.
mine is freely given
come, have my love

hold me and i will shine for you.
i will repay you a million times,
for there is no art like a life
and no joy like the first

i am small, so small
hold me in you
i am so small
hold me

i cry at fresh beauty
and justify the cycle of death.
my newfound laughter
is the fount of redemption

i circumscribe the limits of evil,
it will never be absolute.
i set its boundaries and barriers
no darkness can reach this -
this holy apprehension
