The secret of life?

Have you ever
held something small and fragile
in your arms
your heart
your mind’s eye?

Have you ever
protected something small and fragile
from cold winds
icy stares
ugly remarks?

Have you ever
witnessed something small and fragile
grow in strength
stature
intensity?

Have you ever
loved something small and fragile
knowing
that one day
it will take on a life of its own
and leave you
fulfilled
for you have given
something small and fragile
the very best of you?
