live, laugh, love! ;)

away it goes

swaddled in the best I can find
(bubble wrap and cotton candy clouds)
it walks out the door with a mind of its own

it’s gonna show the world, it says
with a beam and a hopeful shine
I watch it go
my last glimpse shows
a stray tendril out of place
dismay
make a grab, come back!
make a snatch, regret

it’s too late
it’s gone
it’s gonna show the world

its mussed-up hair and cheeky dare
its courage rare, and treasured wares
shone with loving care
