Letting go

Dad and Robin 1

As parents, we have to stand watchfully aside
Whilst toddlers take their first faltering steps unaided.
Metaphorically we repeat this with each step towards mature adulthood.
At work, young employees we helped train get promoted above us.
In life we are given people to hold in our heart
For a while.
Lord, grant us grace to let go
When it is time for them to step out
Where we cannot accompany.
