For My Granddaughter

You can't ever give up, it's not allowed
your value far too precious to ignore.
The path ahead remains unploughed,
abandoned is your gentle life before.

Without preparing for the arduous climb
the journey has begun. It will be tough.
Right off, a boulder has appeared, no crime,
the trail you've chosen, barren, steep, and rough.

The first of many painful lessons stings 
your heart. The ecstasy of love now pain.
I know you feel the ache of broken wings,
believing you will never love again.

Take time to see the beauty that is you.
Believe that you can start once more anew.

Spoken as a loving Grandmother. I hope you find a way to save these little gems, it could mean much, later in life to your granddaughter, at the very least, the measure of your love and care for her.
