  1. I saw a laugh jump from his mouth, a tear fall from his eye.
  2. I saw him run, and climb, and jump, and cross the brooklet by.
  3. I saw him cheer a lonely face; I saw him make a friend.
  4. I saw his hands building love, his eyes compassion send.
  5. I walked with him; I talked with him; I shared with him my mind.
  6. I laughed with him; I played with him; he returned in kind.
  7. I camped with him; I ate with him; my wisdom did impart.
  8. I rowed with him; I drove with him; he’s ever in my heart.

Support independent journalism

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
