Ties and knots,
Invisible twine unbreakable
Even beyond repair
It still makes you emotional
And wounds cut deeper
And love more fierce
Until you make your own.
Then to protect from the unknowns
And to question all you know
And see how much there is to learn
How hard it is to raise and grow
Learning how to let it go
New memories sow
Seeds into young minds
With the love that we show.
I know that they still care for each other.

Better with each reading. So much wisdom in each line.
I’m pleased you think so. This piece runs deep for me.
