Fear grips my heart
When your dimpled knuckles
Grip the window bars;
You are taking a glance at
The wonders outside.
And darling, that’s the first step ~
Let me hold you for now
While you pull yourself up
To your tiny-toed feet,
For, once you step out,
There’s no coming back.
Life runs forward, so will you;
That’s what I want for you,
A fearless proceeding.
And yet, here I am, nervously
Watching you try against gravity.
Here I am, cherishing the moment
You discovered raindrops
From nowhere, rippling puddles.
Here, I stay still, while your eyes
Wander in endless wonder,
Seeking passions beyond my arms.
But a nest is a nest, always;
A promise always a promise…
Home is where you would curl up
When the world hurts you;
Yes, that’s inevitable, but fret not ~
Here, I am yet again, arms open…
I am the oasis you’ll always find
In the endless deserts of life.
