Learning to Swing

It’s okay

Let the tears

Run down

Your cheeks

You will breathe

In deeply

And out slowly

You will love

Being with yourself

As you whisper

To the trees

Laugh with the sky

And swing high

Remembering…

A divinely, carefree 

Little girl

Learning to go

Back and forth

Alone with freedom

For the first time.
