Weight

wp-1464810976571.jpgMy daughter;

I want you to know
Even though I carried you
In my womb
For 9 months

Your father
Carried us on his back
For more than that.

The weight of our love
Made him stay up
When he could have slept

And his readiness
To preserve our smiles
Made him wait on his own.

You might find heaven
Beneath my feet
But you will find God
In his arms.
