She Knows I Will

My daughter doesn't wait
for me to stretch out my hands to catch her
Before she jumps
She doesn't wait
And wonder if
I will
Or worry what if mommy
She doesn't consider
Any other outcome
There is no discussion
She doesn't question
Or ask herself beforehand
Will she
Or could
Or would
catch me?
There is no time
For doubt
Before her knees bend
And her feet kick
Off the ground
My daughter doesn't wonder
If I will catch her
Before she jumps
She knows I will
