Ten Thousand Kisses

This poem is to my son Matthew

Whom I gave 10 thousand kisses,

and can’t give 10 thousand more.

Whose bright blue eyes and dimpled cheeks are

etched clearly in my mind.

Always so confident and self assured

I couldn’t hold you back.

In such a rush to leave the nest,

racing to experience it all.

As if you knew …

your time was running out.

Now, I cradle my broken heart,

like a delicate egg.

Wondering, how I could have kept you safe.
