First Little Steps

Wrenched, my heart
with every fall,
Your failure meant mine-

And there you stumbled again.

With little steps ebbing
you held my finger, looked at me
I still remember your twinkling eyes-

As you smiled at me, never tiring.

You took your first step little one
I sighed, looking at you
You took another step or two, then looked back at me-

And tears welled up in your sister's eyes, my little one.
