I Say, You Say

A child (surprise!)
            yours

Daughter (ignored)
            called out one

Sister (competing)
            the apple of your eye

Bride (terrified)
             loved

Mother (novice)
             protected

Teacher (trusting)
             a priest

Writer (trembling)
             a gift

Nana (overjoyed)
             your friend

"Just Me" (yes)
             redeemed.
