Separation Anxiety

Parenting isn’t always so gratifying

If I claimed that it was you’d know I was lying

From colicky babe to a teen non-complying

Rules you broke you would claim needed clarifying

Light up shoes without laces before you were tying

First day of first grade you held tight- that was trying 

Costly clothes you out grew I’d end up rebuying 

The ones that were stained only needed tie-dying

Just a few days from now you’ll be off flying 

Back to school then my makeup will need re-applying 

Yes: “Parent well, children grow, bonds need untying.”

Now each time one leaves it’s my eyes that need drying
