mother-and-daughter

There is no hurry my dear

Seeing you flutter your wings

tugs my heart strings

was it yesterday I treasured you in my womb

now to see a young woman bloom..

There is no hurry my dear

hormones not blood course your veins

I foresee pain

you want to conquer mountains

bed of roses— the rough terrain

while your eyes sight the peak

grueling challenges to your heart does speak

my eyes search for pit falls

my love rushing ahead to sheath them all

There is no hurry my dear

I realize my folly

its the journey you need to walk

while I can walk with you not for you

Its your tears to shed

and my hands to hug and wipe

its your victory dance

while I stand in the stands and cheer

There is no hurry my dear

you still have not metamorphosed

stay in my cocoon for a while

There is no hurry my dear……
