Being Mom

I’ve never needed a day off from you, 
never felt the urge to run. 

No.

Instead, I’ve always felt like there could never be enough days with you
before I would have to gather you up 
and release you to the wild wind, 

still tethered to me — 

my love, a kite string, 
you, the wonder in the sky,

one will tugging against the other 
until one lets go or breaks free.
