I, but a casual name to your kin,
will hold you truly and dearly,
cherish deeply the breaths
between ideas, ideologies, and emotions
that I have been honored to share with you.
With the reverence afforded a blessing
I will weep for the absence
of your knowledge
severed by inevitable occasion
Master to servant
Teacher to student
with portions communal
A time of Kairos inspected.
The right, critical, or opportune moment
To bring witness and testimony of your spirit
To the level of intimacy you’ve granted.
I will be your witness.
