Tiny Feet

Tiny feet mean so much
To hold gently and care for
To love and tenderly caress
Encourage along life`s way
Surround and then enclose
In protection, keep them safe
Care for them and heal them
From danger and harms hurts
Watch them grow and develop
Show them independence
Let them go without a tear
No more soft cotton wool
Good and healthy. fit and strong
All the love to live life through.

This poem was written on a scrap of card after I held my child and caress their feet in comfort. The feet in the poem represent that child and their journey through life, while they are growing up until they leave your care and start their next journey on their own.  Its hard to let your child go off and live their life for themselves.
