A child is born
Beautiful, fair,
With smiling eyes
Peach-fuzz hair.


The rain pours down
Hides a mother's tears
As he climbs on the bus
His little hand appears
Waving bye-bye
'Til the bus disappears.


Looking up
He towers over you
Writes, draws, plays guitar
But still enjoys your hugging too.


Moves away
"Of course I'll stay in touch."
As you whisper the words
The very first he ever heard
"I love you very much."

Sounds as if someone is thinking about Adam, but then again he is but a phone call away and willing to discuss anything with his mom as she is his usual, though you write of humor and comediac (word?) poetry you say so much with so get out of my head, I just wrote a poem called "In the Blink of an Eye" with a similar story line, so I will save it a few days, LOL, ED & Rufuz

A superior write in every respect.

blub, blub, blub.... BLOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!! Well, I never expected this over here tonight... but then, why not?! Katy BIG HEART!! Your milk of human kindness and compassion, and the pulse of your organ of human sympathy even exceed the radiance and dimensions of your smile... if such a thing is possible. With you it is impossible to eulogise about your work without waxing lyrical about your person, for the two of you are inseparable and one and the same. Think you must be Mary Poppins and Maria Von Trapp in one... i.e. Julie Andrews in disguise! Lucky you... the slow dance with Christopher Plummer in Sound of Music gets me every time... Luvin this... luvin'ya too, Lady Kate. Laddish Kate xx

What a moving poem, Katy! This beautiful poem, brilliantly condenses years of heartfelt memories! Being a mother of five, it touched me deeply as precious scenes of children and grandchildren, flashed before my mind's eye as I read your poem. Thank you! Bravo!

This is beautiful, Katy and so very true. I never had children, but I have watched my nieces and nephews grow up way too fast. My sister's youngest is graduating high school then off to college. Where does the time go. It seems just yesterday they were at the breast then their first Easter Egg Hunt then they are adults. It all just whizzes by.
Take care,

Yeah, I don't know, Katy, it seems that the grand architect might have spent a little longer than seven days to build this old world and the people in it. You know, put a little more thought about things. At least make it so there isn't so much evil in the world. Ah, me . . . Your poem is sad, but with a lot of happy undertones. We do what we have to do, the rest is up to them.

A mothers love is so refreshing and is never forgotten.

A lovely piece from a loving mother's perspective, Katy - and life truly often does seem to pass us by, in the blink of an eye.
