Goddess of small things

The snapped limbs
of a rag doll,
or a lost toy
the missing piece
of a picture puzzle
or the mislaid
hair clip
from a shiny pair

Her sanguine eyes
look at me
as if I am the
goddess of her small things

However behind
my reassuring smile
I measure my 
fearful fragility

and wait for the inevitable
as she will grow up
to see my
human inability !
