After the Airport Goodbye

Raising Daughters

They need you and need you and need you
Until they don't
Because you've taught them well and
Shown them the way and 
Given them all you have
Your heart and your soul and your favorite flat iron.
They thank you, they hug you, and they leave you
In one motion
They are off and you wouldn't have it any other way
This is why you carried them, why you fed them, and why you held their hand
So one day 
They could let go
And live their beautiful life.

What a beautiful piece. My oldest is getting ready to leave home, and I'm not excited about the transition. I'm sure it will be a wonderful thing, but the mothering heart never wants to let go, eh?
