on a tightrope with unseen safety net of love below

Wreck-less abandon with unseen safety net of love below

I tried to tell her to be cautious, to understand it's a dangerous world out there.
And with those words to ponder, I let her go.
And she flew, cllimbed, and explored,
always pushing her limits,
on the tightrope,
of life.

What she and the rest of you can't see,
is I am here for her should she fall,
should she need a safety net,
loving arms extended,
just off camera,
ready.
