For Selina

Patches that once shone a brilliant black
Are now speckled with a dusty grey.
I can see the years in your eyes.
The youth that once
Made you dance, as if on springs
Has now been replaced
By tired happiness.
You give me a contented kiss
Give me that look to let me know
You're all right.
You're still the baby girl I once knew
Curious, with a love of life
Oblivious to danger.
But now you step
With a subtle wisdom.
I think you feel your age.

Mommy knows
Everything about you
And Mommy loves you anyway.
