It must be hard to let go of children as they grow old. But I think there is always a bond, no matter the distance or circumstance. A lovely poem, Lisa :)
Thank you Loredana. I have been through this before with my two older daughters. This time I feel the finality of my last one leaving and it's difficult to realize I don't have a child to mother in the same old way but I do have wonderful relationships with my children so it does make the transition easier.
I feel and hear the voice of the mother ~ We all have the same fear but I believe that our children will always come back to us ~ Beautiful read Lisa ~
Thank you Grace. I have so many wonderful memories raising my daughters and we are all very close, just hard letting the last "baby" go.
This is so well done Lisa. I think moms everywhere could relate to this. Just perfect.
Thank you Jennifer. Really hard letting that last one go.
"daughters must treadto find themselves." - love this lines. beautiful.
Thank you Natasa.
That last stanza is one of the most beautiful stanzas I have ever read! Wow! My daughter is only 5 (she is still rebellious naturally) so she isn't ready to leave the nest yet but reading your poem made me realize how precious this time is (hugs)
Beautiful for mothers & daughters.
