All I know, all I can feel is his small hand gripping mine. His heart beating so loud the world should hear. His breath so excited as his hair waves through the air.
It's time.
Is it?
Let go.
I can't.
I can do it, he'll say.
I know, I'll reply.
He's ready, am I?
He could hurt himself and probably will
Then again he'll also heal.
He'll peddle and steadily learn.
Keep your head, stay stern.
I'll have to let go sooner or later, how else will he learn to do better. I know someday I'll be watching him ride. One day he'll have to leave my side. But for now with him asleep in my arms, I'm here enjoying every moment of being his mom.
