Launchpad

it is not my success

my heartache nor my failure

I did not fly for her

she leapt and flew on her own

I did, however, sew for her

foundations and silk wings

belief in self in bas relief

embroidered in silver reality

my mistakes fly background

backup singers to her solo

I stand as launching pad

watching her take off
