Mile Markers

This summer evening

among gold-struck trees, I breathe

in the sadness of

seeing her go and breathe out

the joy of seeing her grow.

  1. This poem captures that bittersweet time of year that is especially bittersweet when your children go off to college. I just went with my daughter to send her off 1400 miles away to start her career. It was sad to see her move so far away, but it would have been more sad to see her stay. I send hugs to you.
