1st day of school

My heart beats wildly
Temper flares
A thumping head
Scalding eyes
My fingers tremble
As I feed him b’fast
I am so proud
Yet falling to pieces
He clutches to me
Not wanting me to leave
I soothe him down
Holding back tears
My last goodbye
And I leave
Hearing him howling behind
I don’t look back
My heart beats wildly
My scalding eyes
I nurse my lil’ one to sleep
And my tears flow.
The house feels empty
His toys strewn around
That ache in my heart
Of strings starting to cut loose
Tears follow tears
But I know..
I gave him the tools to adapt
And he’ll be fine!
