In His Stride

He is confidant
He knows his
Place in this
Center no question
I want …
And it is
Watching him walk
Away pulls at my heart
I know that one day
This confidence will lead
Him to worlds
Previously unknown
I stand in awe
Fascinated and envious
How can I be afraid in
The face of such fearlessness
How can I limit my flight
When he has already taken off
The teacher is the student
I learn each day in
This role as parent
And I transform myself
Day by day into
The fearless
Adventure seeking
He looks up to
I am
I am
I can
Fix it or
Let it go
Because he believes in me
And in believing in him
I learn to
Trust me too.
