It's that freedom of childhood:
raised high, secure. Knowing
Grandfather won't let go;
playing "I Spy"
when laughter erupts.
It's horizons, youthful and old,
merging, finding common goals.
Trading preconceived notions of boring
for adventure tapped
when living begins.
It's finding joy in each other,
guidance along rocky paths,
a safe place to rest one's head
Of a wisdom shared
when love uplifts.
