he sits in patient anticipation of what he isn't always sure.
but he hopes as all little boys do.
they don't forget no matter how long it takes.
he will always wait.
maybe he will see his reflection in the window.
making faces while he waits.
the slightest hint of knowing something good will happen.
his tender heart gives way to the hope of never ending.
eyes open wide to surprise and wonder of what life holds.
his strength is more than he knows.
a super hero he dreams of being.
he never wants to be outdone before he comes undone.
holding on tight to what he knows is right.
just a little boy growing up fast and he doesn't know.
as he looks out a window he doesn't know it.
