Tarzan, Boy

When he fell from the sky,
barely born,
no known family
– merely minor memories
of the corpses he crashed with –
did you see the potential
within him?

Did you believe
at that first sight
of that strange child
in this stranger’s land
that he would have so many adventures
before you,
and that you would know him
for so long
and so belovedly?

Did you imagine
during that first day
at the crash site
amongst the fire and carnage
that this child could become yours
and that this man would become the world’s?

Did you know
what the fates had in store
when you first met he
who would be your son?
