Letting Go: A Steep Learning Curve – A Quadrille

The steep facade never phased

Your brave eyes, upward, gazed

Climbing with such sure feet

Never thinking what if, defeat

Yet steeped in my fantasy

My baby is all that I see

Letting go hurts my heart

For I know, this is just the start

Mish at dVerse provided the prompt “steep” for Monday Quadrille #72. I didn’t realize how versatile this word can be! I am not such a fan of steep heights but my daughter (and her friends) are. Ah, youth! Or as a mom, I say, “wah, youth!” 😩😭😭.

  1. Every time I look at my son I often think how big he is gotten and how much he doesn’t need me as much as he needed me before. Then there are times I think he needs my help and then he reminds me he doesn’t. The bittersweetness of childhood.

  2. I don’t know if it ever really gets easier. My 32 yr. old is exploring Southeast Asia by himself, with a backpack. I like the way you’ve captured your daughter’s bravery and zest for life along with the natural instinct we have as parents….to worry. Luckily most of what we worry about never ever happens. 🙂
