The First

Funny how –
I wanted you
to be the
first to know –
whether followed
by good news or bad,
has a way of stopping
you short and filling
every part of you
with gratitude
for the confirmation
of your existence.
I came first.
That was me.
Me, before
anyone else
on this rock.
Funny how
nine little words
can simultaneously
humble you and
make you feel
like not only
the first,
but the only.
