Training Wheels

by Cheryl Merrick

The training wheels,
barely touching now,
as you move farther away
into a home of your own.

The days of us shouting encouragement
and, occasionally, steadying the bike
are nearly over.

You now glide along as a couple.
On two wheels
you whiz around corners,
ably maneuvering the challenges of life.

Just you two,
growing stronger together,
as it is meant to be,
no longer needing
training wheels.
