"I Watched Her At Play" (by Joe DiMino)

I watched her at play,
Delighted from a distance
Knowing she sensed me there
Partaking of her youth,
Rooting her higher
As she climbed
The formidable bars;

Lost myself in her youth—

In timelessness;

In all the rungs before the top,
Life with her seemed forever—
Overruling what I now know;
Reminding me
Of what I once knew,
Packed way in an attic steamer

Youth can capture—
Lift and Hold in orbit—

I stop the angel descent
And push back heaven—

They will have to wait—

At least until she is through playing,
And will approve of my leaving,
Lovingly smile
And let me go—
