The first time I was swinging,
you were there.
You waved your arms without fear nor care.

you told me to hold tight,
then pushed me and set me off into flight.

I felt so free,
swinging back and forth so happily.

When I fell you rushed to my side,
holding me while I cried.
You gently pushed my hair out of my face and gave me a smile,
you said, "don't worry we can just lay here awhile."

But then the bell rang, you sighed and said "oh jeez,"
then picked me up with the slightest of ease.

we walked back to the doors together,
you said, "forget about today, tomorrow will be better."
then i shook my head,
you held me close and said,
"I'll keep teaching you even if it takes forever."

"Eventually you'll get better."
