The Open Spaces

Great Grandmother was too weak and frail
to lift the busy toddler to hold her in her lap.
So she sat quietly observing the antics of the child.
Disappointed in her ability, there was an empty space
between her arms that wanted to nurture
and console the bumps from the little girls falls.
But the child was not constrained by any
knowledge of disability. And quickly noticed
the old woman's presence.
Quiet tears fell down the old wrinkled cheeks
when the child crawled over to her and reached up,
presenting an open space between her arms
that she wanted the woman to fill.
A tragedy was averted for both the young and old.
When Daddy saw them reach for one another.
He lifted up the child and placed her on the old lap.
And all the open spaces were filled with love.
