Grown Children - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Little babes held in arms helplessly dependent
Growing day by day…becoming independent
Learning how to communicate and make their way
Leaving Mom and Dad…moving a distance away

Whether far from home or moving just down the street
An ounce of relief is joined by a feeling of being incomplete…
Grown children are missed…even though it doesn’t show
A ringing phone brings hopes of hearing them say hello
