Her kids are growing up

A Mothers Pain

Despite the tender smile
Painted on her lips
Despite the steady walk
Directed by her hips
Her soul is bruised
Heart leaking like a tap
With the simple thought
That her kids are growing up

  1. How appropriate, that’s probably so many mom’s pain when school starts and they see their kids more grown up than a year before.
