Love's threads

I knew you
before our eyes met,
love’s threads woven
when we were
still one.
Your birth
making us
live as two,
love’s threads
but still connecting
our souls.
You grew
and more and more
you need to be free
from your mother’s care.
All she can do
is once more
trust upon
the threads of love
to be there
for eternity.

Giving birth to your children is the first separation, but as a mother you can still hold on to your children and overload them with your love while they are still young.
As they grow older, they need more freedom and holding on too tight is only making the process of another separation more painfull.
Then all you can do is trust..

this is what i am going through with our oldest son .. in my experiences of loosing loved ones too early i have a tendency to hold on a little too much… while he claims his right to experience life the way he chooses.. in that he teaches me to learn to let go and trust..
