“They grow up so fast.”
Cliche, perhaps…but it’s true.
it seems. Until the day comes
suddenly when they’re just…not.
And you send them out
Though that’s the “mom fear”
It’s just that you’ll miss her.
(Bad tanka poetry, in response to WordPress’s Weekly Writing Challenge, and in honor of my little girl starting Kindergarten this week – an event I didn’t anticipate being so emotional about!
I’m so excited for her…but it’s a lot harder than I expected to watch her take these steps away from me.)
