A mother's journey

We hold them in our arms
for all too brief a time,
then let them go
to make their way
into the world.
One faltering step
and then another
and all too soon
they're walking
and then riding
on their own.
And as we watch
their journeys take them
far away from home
we remember
the feel of their warm skin
against our own...
