Pitty-Pat on the cereal crunched floorCrash! BOOM!
To silence…Memories of heartbeats—of children snoring
Heartbreaks now... Where did the noise go?
From toddler, to teen Then off and away—-
Fly like the wind Abandon the nest—
fledglings fly Emptiness
Where did the time go?
The house creaks Missing the chaos
And bubble gum—With music blaring
beyond capacity…Where did the fun go?
Gone is the day of child’s play
Painting sails on the wall With white clouds—
Peanut butter sandwiches—grape dripping jelly
MY babies go?
