Watching you,
My heart races with trepidition.
Your excitement
Leaves frothy trails in your wake
As you move toward a new adventure.
Uncaring of the costs or potential dangers,
You embrace the future-
Arms flung wide.

And I,
I stand back,
Unwilling to disturb such pure joy;
The delight of discovering your next steps.
Of an infant at my breast;
A face glowing because I'm there;
A laugh of devilment
Trip through my mind.
My heart bears one more fissure
In your name, yet...
I smile with pride
Hiding boundless fears;
Damming the tears just below the surface.

You grin,
Jauntily waving one last goodbye
As you leap toward the unknown,
Eager to leave my side.
A mantra,
Our ritual parting,
Repeats in my heart--
A warding spell against
"I love you forever, Mom."
"I love you,
Forever, Baby."

And time moves on....
