pruning

You can sit with her

the child of your innermost being

You can hold her hand and assure her

that life is a journey

that there’s room to grow

and change

and become

You can tell her stories

and sing her songs

and offer encouragement

She’s just a child, you know

 

But then some day

you have to decide

that your life

that her life

need to risk growing up

growing out

growing in

And that takes wisdom and experience

well beyond childhood

 

So you invite the Master Gardener

to prune just a bit

in all the right places

 

Then New Life will come

and embrace your spirit
