Ode To A Daughter's Steadfast Love

The wind beneath my wings says the song
But more than this, the attention lasts
Longer, when we're just sitting
Idling the time away
Not requiring
A token
The certainty
Of steadfast love
Which never demands
Demonstration, just an ear
A closeness, a hand to hold when cold
Swimming, parkouring, aikido, all she can do
Pales in comparison to what her heart needs, a refuge
