small moments

I am enjoying
these last small moments in time
with my son
before his life's adventure continues
the quotidian life of
the shopping trip
picking up food and
watching tv
the exceptional life of 
listening
hearing and
understanding
this may be our last time 
together as parent and child
when I left for college
I never returned
to my mother's 
closed mind
and stifled life
I am different
open to experience and change
fly free
enjoy your journey

This is lovely! I understand what you are saying. As my eldest enters her senior year, I am so aware that we are closing a chapter together.

This made my heart feel both squeezed and really full at the same time.
