I cried inside

As he happily walked

Away from me

No longer just mine


He looked back afraid

I shooed him along

Wanting to grab him

And hold him tight


The teacher smiled

And took his hand

She closed the door

I could no longer see him


I missed him already

This was a mistake

I’m not ready for this

Am I


Stop! You're being silly

He will be grand

It's only a few hours

Keep telling yourself that


God! They were right

His first day at school

Was going to be

Very traumatic



My only payment for this poem is feedback

Show your appreciation and pay me well
