they grow away from us

our home is a child’s place

the laughter bouncing off the walls

it tickles my ears like high notes on the piano

the touch of a little hand as they walk past

more value than diamonds around my neck

how have i lived not knowing this love

my people my little people

mine

ours

mine

they are of me

they are the best of me

my hand on their hands

my head one their shoulders

they will grow up and away

i will remember their kisses and their kind smiles

that will always belong to me
