Time flies by

IMG_1517That’s my son in the middle, walking into high school. My son, now a young man. My no longer a little guy, my no longer a boy! My son, the freshman.

How did this happen? I could swear it was just yesterday that I walked him into school for his first day of kindergarten.

because time flies by…

As I sit wiping this trickle of tears,

looking back over the past fifteen years,

wondering where did the time with you go

I’m desperately wishing the next four are slow.

How did we get here? You’re now a young man.

I’m trying as hard as I possibly can,

to value each second, not worry and think

how fast it will go if I let myself blink!
