Holding on…

As I see into your eyes
It glows with all the love that you have.
I wonder what makes it glisten with tears.
Is it your reminiscence
that dates back to the first day when I looked into your eye?
Or is it because of your need to hold on to my hand for a second more?
I look at your face and wonder why.
I gaze into your eyes again
And see what’s mirrored there.
It is your memory of my first touch,
my first cuddle and my first longing.
And now, it is My need to hold onto your hand
for a second more.
To assure you that I will be all right and to say
“Goodbye Mama”.
