None of This Is Mine, It Is All Yours

Sometimes I am deep
in the loss of holding hands
while we cross the street
and missing your sweaty head
on my arm
in my bed
at night

Now I sleep while you write
in the most delicious
role reversal I can imagine
and I am a supporting character
in the story
to plot

Happy 13th Birthday to my daughter Anne
with all the love now and forever
xoxo Mama

  1. Oh Anne is thirteen. Wow. Yes, we miss the sweaty hands and heads..........but they are still close by, walking beside you.......and they are so wonderful! I love that she writes and am not one bit surprised.

    1. She's writing a novel and a manga series among other things!
      Sherry, I can't believe how grown she is. She still hugs me occasionally. :)
