i can hear him reading up there.
i've got just a few minutes.
they're up there too.
(although they just came down for toast.)
now one in the shower,
one on the computer,
talking to her friend, live and full-screen.
both growing up and away.
i can feel it now, in such tiny but certain increments.
even the little one,
now i need to be firm.
need to do what's good for her,
not just coddle,
not just stroke.
about him, i feel just as raw and fresh as ever.
there is no settling.
oh, it's so safe and secure,
to be sure.
but when you are in love,
you never completely step back from the edge
we've got so much farther to go,
we've come such a long way.
