    it was almost as if i needed you
    the circumstances surrounding your initial
    coming to be weren't necessarily happy
    but i needed you
    to prove that you should be here
    and later, now, you cling to me
    as if you need me always
    as if what i was feeling as you grew inside
    me was a mutual thing
    and i love you
    you bring to my house the ever fresh smell
    of strawberries and honeysuckle
    lingering softly in the air in all the rooms
    and your room,
    behind the kitchen and the dining room,
    is floral and slightly old-fashioned
    white and yellow and green
    kept warm by the humming things in the kitchen
    where i know you'll always feel at home--
    even in all your wildness.
