Like Him

I wanna be like him, Lord.
Like Miles.
I wanna suck the marrow
out of each and every day.
I wanna live life so hard and fast
that it breaks my heart
to go to bed each night.
I wanna wake up impatient
for the day to begin.
I wanna play hard and pray hard.
I wanna learn new words every day.
I wanna experience delight
and wonder again.
I wanna ask "Why?"
until the answers run out.
I wanna grab all that this great wide world
of yours has to offer
until my last bedtime,
when I wanna still be saying, "I'm not done yet!"
