Palpitations every evening make me wonder
Why is it? Why am I? What shall I do?
Breathe and weed, breath and weed.
Barefoot in soil, step in the garden
Catch a child mid air
Laugh and stare, laugh and stare.
She giggles at bugs then asks for a hug.
I understand I live for this love
Be aware of all that’s there
My offspring bring joy with mayhem.
I never regret my path.
