Where Once There Was...

Where once there was a small boy and girl,
Two fine companions there unfurled

No longer simply sweet, they grew
Into adults both strong and true.

This occured, I'm unsure how;
They left me, well contented now

To make their way upon this Earth,
Well assured of their intrinsic worth.

This is the way of all offspring,
To fly, and let us sigh and sing.

    William, today my oldest son moved into his own place. What a bittersweet event. How timely it is that I find this poem. Thank you! Hugs, Donna
