Mother :: Daughter

I have given her
what I wanted
when I was her age:

No bedtime, no alarm clock;
as much time in bed as possible.
Freedom to believe, to change,
without expectations or arguments.
Time with friends, time alone,
by choice, not obligation.

Only time will tell
if what I wanted
is right for her.

Inspired by today's prompt from write alm.
