With Care

With care
she holds
my hands in hers
as a smile slowly appears
accompanied by a pair crow’s feet.

She recites a prayer
to give me strength for a new day,
and to keep me safe.

With care
her arms wrap around me
as she whispers
“I love you.”
” Have a good day at work.”

Always with care
she’ll embrace me
and lets me go
with a soft smile
that warms my heart.

With care
I will remember these actions for a lifetime.
