Oh My Baby Girl

Oh My Baby Girl

A Poem by victoria

Unexpected, 
she appeared 
in an uneasy gait
top heavy
in agitated silence 
we ate
then walked
sometimes marching 
in drum-beat rhythm
to the tantrum of thoughts 
that thundered 
her vision
till reaching the river
where we sat  
on some boulders
while the suns
warm compassion
blanketed our shoulders
and I so want to pre-empt 
further fall 
into pain
but I know 
it's a path
she'll walk over and again
because mama said
there'd be days
like this
when what 
you wished for 
was not what is
so silent I sat
through the streams
that she cried
till nothing was left
of the ideals
she'd contrived
I pursed 
her cheeks into
lips-fish-pout
and kissed her gently
with a love
beyond doubt
By evening  sun
lighter-hearted
consoled
she left wrapped
in the glow
that had cast willow gold.
