zechariah's prayer

luke 1:67-79

my son

my dear one
how long i have waited
for the day of your arrival

and even now
on the very day 
of your birth
i must already
begin to learn
how to let you go

for you do not belong to me
but to the one who formed
and made you
the one who
dreamt you into being
the one for whom
you must
even now
begin to prepare the way

so my job
as your dad
is not to hold onto you
but to let you go
and to allow you to become
all that he made you to be
