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
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.
