You work your whole life intending the best.
Despite best intentions, they escape the nest.
Spreading wings to fly anew,
Everything bright and most things true.
Children are blessings and curses too.
Which are yours?
Whose are you?
Try to blink past the somber.
Look past and only reflect and remember.
The smile, the sun, the rain and the laugh,
of your children’s voice, and your child’s path.
