Rocket Launcher

You sat
atop my shoulders
with all the fragility
and aplomb
of a space capsule
awaiting its moment
to rise into the sky
and I
your rocket launcher
create the fiery thrust
setting you on the trajectory
of exploration
of adventure
of your life
the distance I can go with you
is limited
your face is ever toward
the shining and shimmering
stars and moons and planets
at some point
I must let go
leaving you on your own
as I return
to the earth
the land
the home
the shrine of my life
and you become another
of the glorious lights
my eyes behold
