Have you noticed the milestones of new born babies
Astounded with wonder at their feet and fingers?
In awe of the patterns that their curling can draw
Gurgling with joy at faces that smile down
Wanting to be cradled but unable to move?
A few months later they discover their legs.
Amazed & charged at what they can do
They stand up a zillion times, never giving up
Struggling to run when first they must learn to amble!
Have you been amused by their anger at every failure?
Or cheered their loud protest at every fall?
We are like babies too,
Adjusting & fumbling with new found senses
Teething aches our hearts have to endure
Twin souls too have a test to surmount
Before they receive the wings they deserve.
I promise to remember this each time we fall apart
For what I want with you my life after life
Is a harmonious flight into the skies beyond...
