my children
working on playing
out their lives out there
in the world night and day
lighting my life regard
less of me than of experience
of all those others who
are they that hold
my children
i hope they are
safe happy
and self
aware

who
was that me
who took you
and gave to you
and somehow
wandered
with you
from then
until now
i am
amazed
at how sad
i am
at my
losing you
