Almost

[Son] James was Almost

[Son] James had been planned right up until the moment of birth

But names change; this son was destined for a different first

one that made a laughable implication of [Son] James

And so [Son] James flitted to the floor, discarded as the family moved on

Another son was Almost

Parents had been planning right up until the moment of birth

But plans change; these parents prayed for a different gender

one that made them laugh at implications and stereotypes

And so the child was declared Abigail [Daughter] as the family moved on

Almost

Abigail [Daughter] returned many times to [Son] James

to laugh at the Almosts they both were

Almost a part of family

Almost the right gender

But plans change

As do names

And eventually, the two Almosts became Whole
