A Gift

He gave me a gift
but what do i do with it
Nothing to open
No paper to rummage through
Not a box to cut open
Not a string hanging to pull
He gave me a gift
But what do I do with it
No instruction to go by
Not a list of how or way
I received his gift with open arms
I acceped it
What to do with it came all natural
A touch of soft flesh
A gift no one could match
My genes
My offspring
A gift given to me
