A Hug

A thank you hug after moving into the Dorm! That was a lot of work but we made it through it. Tyler's all moved in and ready for college. The drive back home was rainy and long. I wrote this poem. This mom is going to really miss her boy! Yet as long as he is happy and healthy, all is good.

THE DAY I LEFT MY SUNSHINE BEHIND

It was sunny the previous day

but now it’s gray,
the rain falls from the sky,
tears from my eyes.

I can't count the times
I've thought of you,
I count the number of inches in the meter,
number of tissue.

I feel the wet drops,
some warm, some cold.
I hear the softly muffled sobs,
yet there's a silence in the air.

I will count the days,
raindrops, snowflakes, each fond memory,
until my sunshine comes back to me.
As I wait behind.
