You

("love" prompt at Poetic Bloomings)

Moist eyes

each time you succeed

or try your best

filling my heart

it takes up more than my chest

fills my belly as well.

It almost hurts

how much I love

you.


(for my children: Ashlyn, Darrien, Emily, and Lathaniel)

  2. so true! A parent's love has nothing to do with where they place at the finish line!

    I'm reading Buddah's comment and thinking...so much we don't know about 'poets' lives.
