When my children get hurt

When my daughter burned her hand
on the fireplace
I experienced the emotion
I can never quite name
but happens every time
my children get hurt
which is not alarm
or fear
or even anguish or regret
but something
that I can only describe
as an acute sense
of being swindled
as though I felt sure
I had been sold
a more durable heart.
