Audrey on a Swing

 

 

 

                               I watch you soar forward

while I stand behind

               giving you an occasional push

when you need it.

 

I remain still

                            as I witness your motion.

                                           You rise higher and higher

                                                before my eyes.

                   You swiftly ascend upward,

          growing, living.

 

For one brief instant I grab you,

try to hold you

                                          suspended,

but you protest and demand to be released.

 

So with one final       push

                          I let you go,

                   watch you fly forward again.

                   This time you want

                                  no assistance,

                for you love the discovery

                                                      of your freedom.
