Intervention-

 Intervention

Tiny shoes on tiny feet

Stumbling moving forward,

Arms raised high the air to beat

Smiles her sweet reward.

 

Mother walking closely by

Father beckoning on,

Sister urging her to try

Thoughts of homework gone.

 

Rosie reaching out her arm

Rocks on trembling limb,

Face now showing some alarm

Throws a glance at him.

 

Father inches closer then

Reaches toward his girl

Rosie shuffles forward again

Shakes a wayward curl.

 

Rosie tripping, starts to fall,

Tears begin to glisten

Mother gives a startled call

Sister stops to listen?

 

Father plucks her from the fall

Strokes the tear stained miss,

Mother reaching, standing tall

Takes her with a kiss.

 

Could it be that if we trip?

When with life’s cares we bend

There’ll be someone’s hand to grip

An ever watchful friend

  1. I especially enjoyed the last stanza. It is the sort of thing that one embroiders into a piece to be framed and hung on the wall; or perhaps, scripts into a thank-you note to a dear friend who did just that.
