my daughter with Eddie

lioness still

2 Comments

you think you know,
beforehand,
what you will feel,
but no it is impossible
the first time,
even with a child
you carry, part of you.
the fierce love comes
in waves of tenderness
letting down like milk
and never stops.
with each new step
from stone to anchored stone
across life’s flow,
strength to strength, joy to joy,
my heart follows, watching,
knowing only pride
as she runs on, lioness also,
my firstborn
