-Unlatched-

_______________________

So young, I was, and so naive There was no doubt, I did believe this babe who's latched inside my womb with ties we had,... would always be Latched on was he, as he was fed then later days, our hands instead Not tall enough to open gates I would reach the latch for his escape In time he grew to need more space The cord we had, still had it's place The loving ties from birth, so long were gently stretching.., moving on, yet still remaining full and strong In time he grew, to be a man Our bond had changed, but still lives on He fell in love, as it should be His bond with her, I'm glad to see doesn't mean our own is gone Songs are sung when lovers part but no song for a mother's heart When new adventures come one day and new roads take him far away The man he is, has been set free to be the man he wants to be The child he was is never gone She's letting go, yet holding on If once, one wish, were mine to choose so many would my thoughts pursue But one within my heart still yearns for just one day, the clocks would turn Together you and I would be sitting there among the trees I would lift you up upon my knee just as we did when you were three…

I'm visiting my favz today Carrie, and how I remember sharing this write of yours with Noah, and to this day he still says to me; "Pops, I'll always sit on your lap and smooch you right on your lips" I promise"! This man will always treasure you for bringing this write to Noah and myself ! And when he gets home in a couple of minutes, I'm going to read it to him again, and I know that I'll get that big giant smooch ! I have the smooch towel ready! Have a blessed week Carrie ! Much love, james

What is it with you poets on here stirring up my emotions all the time! That was beautifully written, and I think I better get some tissues before I look deeper into the rest of your poetry, which I'm sure is just as magical :)
