Looking Back

IMG_3912

Looking back

at you, my future,

looking for treasures

in the tide,

I hope what you seek,

you will always be able to find.

I hope the salt water

refreshes

and only from happiness

falls from your eyes.

 

Looking back

at you, my future,

with summer’s breeze

and your golden strands

at play,

may you never

lose your way

back to nature,

back to this day,

from the magic and wonder and awe,

never let your heart

too far stray.

 

Looking back

at you, my future,

the silhouette of innocence,

I pray the world

is gentle with you

never scathes you with harshness,

that you retain the grains

of sands

of time

and the power to reverse it,

to transport you

back to this moment

when you are most in need of it,

To my absolute greatest joys, with love,

Mom
