two-day

two-day
is for remembering
for counting
the ways of change
in a decade
of difference
since thirty
came and went
with small ones
tugging at my hands
time hurts
time heals
but time always moves on
and so do I

  1. “small ones tugging at my hands”. Yes. Well said. I understand this. And pounding on the bathroom door and wanting to be held and climbing into your bed in the middle of the night and asking for macaroni and cheese for dinner again. Those years pass so fast, once they’re gone. Time is funny like this. All the best for many more. Make a wish and blow those candles out! Alice P.S. Joyeux anniversaire!

      1. The kids are vastly easier when they can wipe their own bottoms and make their own snacks. Still a lot of work (even at 17) but, yes, you can usually go to the bathroom alone. 🙂
