Where Do We Go From Here?

Where do we go from here? 
What To Expect The First Year,
Left us behind around seven months. 
There is no map into my child's mind. 
However, we do have guidebooks. 
We have tour guides who have traveled this road
Before us. 
Even with them,
This is a road
Less traveled.
There is no smooth sailing.
Rough terrain
Awaits us
With every step.
Life jackets are there,
Strapping us into place,
But, they don't always fit.
We struggle,
My son
And, I.
To make our ends meet.
To connect. 
To make peace
With what connects us.
Together, I guess,
We cannot sink.
We are a buoy
Keeping the other afloat. 
Bobbing on the water's edge.
Always one step from the shore.
