moving right along...

was my very

high school
freshman orientation
the last time
 i will walk
 the halls of the school
with my child 
new schedule in hand
searching for rooms
trying to figure out
how to get
 from one wing
to the other
in the allotted time frame
that task may be harder
for this last child
the halls are filled
during class change
with girls
i expect that might make
for some tardy slips
the smiles he gets
and gives
are worth it all
this kid enjoys
life and for that
i am grateful
and living
 my last high school
through his twinkling eyes
