Balance

I try and try
To find balance
Between my heart and mind

You play and play
Not knowing
You fill my heart up

Carefully
One foot
In front of the next



You tip toe
Turning on the edges
Teetering

Arms astride
Blond locks waving
Long legs pointing

Finding your own
Balance
Taunting me with your wisdom



Teasing me
With your inner peace
And knowledge of grand design

Giggling
As I
Say "Be Careful!"

Smirking
As you catch me
Studying your every move



Sprinting away
To find
Your next pleasure

Knowing
Of
Life's simplicity

Unknowing
Of
Jadedness

Keeping
Your Mama
On her toes...beaming with pride
