stumbled

When I stumbled over

that tree root on the island

that always trips me up;

the one on the winding path

to solitaire, through those

blighted pines

I felt my knees bruise

pride wounded.

oh it made my eyes tear up

as you outstretched your

toddler hand

smiling so sweetly

with such kindness that all

I could do was to hold

you tightly to me

stumble forgotten now.
