Poem by Karlo Sevilla : ‘Dear Milo’

silhouette of tres
Dear Milo,

A few days ago, in the room,
when face to face we stood,
I asked you something
that I now can’t remember,
and even before you could answer,
at that very moment, I was surprised
at how tall you’ve grown,
as if you shot up inches overnight!
The top of your head
breaches my shoulder level.

How could I have not noticed,
when I’m with you every day?
Oh of course I did not notice,
because I’m with you every day!
That incremental growth
that stealthily holds sway!

And then secretly I sighed,
“You are slipping by.”
{Or is it I?)
