    Here’s a snapshot poem I wrote about saying goodbye to my young daughter at the airport

     

    Exquisite baby girl now grown

    Not quite fully

    Arms laced through giant backpack

    Schleps her pulley

     

    At checkpoint. Turns back. Nods. Half smiles

    Ponytail bobs

    My heart a broken heap on floor

    Silently sobs

     

    G-d, please watch her, lead her, bless her

    Smooth road’s cracks

    Exciting journey, she takes off

    Mom will relax

    oh. my. gosh.

    i have a little baby girl and even now (crazy mamma) i’m wondering how I’ll ever let her say goodbye and go off on her own.

    this hit the spot.

    thank you 😉

    Your daughter is really lucky to have a mom like you…

    My baby girl now has her own baby girl! Amazing to discuss and compare our childbirth experiences and baby raising!
