As you lay there beside me, I can’t help but wonder
About how something like you could come into being
A link in a long chain, you remain tethered to a history, we know nothing
About
But for which I know I’m thankful
Because within you every particle is perfect
And your beating heart the sum of many working parts
You are a triumph of natural selection, every mutation leading to your
Perfection
And I’ll try, I’ll try, and I’ll try, and I’ll try
I’ll try and I’ll try

This is my ode to your ancestors
Appreciate your recipe, their million-year masterpiece
You are a triumph of natural selection, every mutation leading to your
Perfection
And I’ll try, and I’ll try, and I’ll try, to understand

How something like you, came into being
How someone like you, is here with me
