To My Son

You take my hand
and follow me with
unsteady steps and
simple trust
that I will lead you safely through
the springtime of your life

You run ahead
I follow close to
keep you safe from
unknown threats
as you skip playfully
through the summer of your life

Side by side
we walk along
companions in a life
of shared memories
your arm around my shoulder
as we stroll through the autumn of my life

You take my hand
I follow you with
unsteady steps and
simple trust
that you will lead me safely through
the winter of my life
