Like a Child

just be glad we did it
while we could no more
be young first noticing
learning the repertoire

no more new places
people revealing secrets
we are glad to know
believe will never end

read and remember how
I too arrived amazed
thinking only I was new
and strange to the others

I tuck her in and kiss her
chastely like a  child
well loved and honored
in her private inccocence
