Don’t Clasp Too Tightly

(photo from Magpie Tales)

hesitation is my name
i know you well
you are the child
who stands on the edge
of fun, afraid you might
say or do the wrong thing
frightened of the laughter
should you fall
waiting for an invitation
to join the fraternity
of the playground
i stand silently beside you
holding your hand just
long enough-just until
it’s too late to jump on
life’s merry-go-round
but do not clasp my hand
too tightly for soon
regret will take my place
