Trust


Week 4 of the Weekly Parenting Poetry Workshop by Lauren Wayne of Hobo Mama.
The theme of this week is Trust.



Trust 


to let go of you

each day
each milestone

to believe
to know
to be thankful

you are your own person
on your own
                            journey


I am only
                    your guide
                    your mentor
                    your safety net

                    your parent

I will be here
               for you

  1. so beautiful.
    Truly.
    I love your formatting too.
    I feel like I travel the journey of your poem as well.

    And the "girly bird" is its own poem.

  3. "to let go of you" — This tender yet inexorable growth through parenthood. Such a beautiful poem, and the bird who will spread her wings fits perfectly. Thank you for sharing!

  4. I really like how you set "journey" aside, like it really is her own!
