TO THE EDGE

Expectations…she exceeded them…
because her parents made a pledge
that every time she needed them…
they would take her to the edge.

They took her to the edge of fear…
and when her courage swayed
they gently whispered in her ear…
it’s okay to be afraid.

They instilled in her the desire to achieve
from the moment she could crawl
always reminding her, “You must believe!”…
and…“We will catch you if you fall.”

“Don’t worry if you fail,” they agreed,
“just don’t let your dreams die.”
“It’s disappointing if you don’t succeed…
but it’s a tragedy not to try.”

They never told her of their pledge…
only repeating, “We believe in you!”
Their love took her to the edge…
Their love pushed her…
and she flew.
