I myself am entirely made of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.

My mother tells me
Every pot has a cover
And for every empty hand
Somewhere in the world
Another fits perfectly
When the fingers intertwine

There is a person on this Earth
With an extra pillow
And an empty spot in bed
Which they save just for me
So that we might dream together

Mom says the moon and the stars
Live together in happiness
Shining every night
And that someday
If I follow the North Star
It will lead me in the right direction
To wherever you are
Whoever you are

I can only hope that she is right.
