Letter to a Father

I want to comfort you.
can I comfort you?

I want to fly to you.
can I fly to you?

I want to fix you.
can I fix you?

I want to fill you.
can I fill you?

I want to save you.
can I save you?

I want to save us.
can I save us?

or do we sit here,
you and I,

undone,
until there is

enough room
for everything?
