Oh, that jam-packed time of year
is upon us once again
Time to say so long to Pajama Tuesdays
and sleeping in.
Up at the crack of dawn, fighting,
for our time in the mirror
Those leisurely summer days are gone;
it couldn’t be clearer.
No more slow waking mornings,
with no place to go
Every day is now scheduled
and it has to be just so.
So much to do, the places and things
we have to be
Such strict time lines enforced –
there is little left free.
I miss my afternoon girl chats
and pep talks with my son
I couldn’t wait for you to go back,
but now the days are no fun!
Busses, then dinner, homework, bath, reading,
and don’t say no,
But what I want to do is snuggle up with you both
and never let go!
There are many more years of this
that I will have to endure
And every year that it happens
I become more and more sure,
That you are my life, you are literally
what makes me whole
Each day when you are gone, I miss you
down to my soul.
But I like you to be with your friends and to
watch you learn, flourish and grow.
I want to see all you can achieve and I
truly want you to know…
That though I long for your faces
when ever we are apart
No matter where we are – I love you,
Always. And with all of my heart.
