Silent walk

walking-hand-in-hand

 

We walked silently hand in hand.
My mind drifted between events
Way too many to count.

I worried about our future
While being comforted by the past —
We’ve always managed to make it.

We’ve come a long way.
We still have many roads to travel.
We’ve only just begun!

A tear filled my eye
As I let go of her hand
Watching her walk into her day.

I remember when her infant fingers
Gripped me tight.
I remember when her
Toddler fingers fought to pull away.

I now cherish the moments
When she wants to hold my hand
For as she grows I have to give her freedom.

She too is torn between growing up
And still being my baby.
I cherish when she hugs me tight.

I walked silently hands in my pocket
Grateful to be given the chance
To be her mom to hold her hand again.
