the price of love (is fear)

by James Morehead

feeling for breath as the newborn sleeps
anxious and nervous as the fever creeps

running releasing the cyclist's first flight
waving goodbye as she passes from sight

a tingle of nerves when she climbs to the stage
the moment of silence before turning the page

i know now watching my daughters grow bolder
while all the while the protectors grow older

that love enriches beyond any measure
and comes wrapped with fear, the loss of its treasure
