Things I Miss

things I miss

I miss our first conversations about life,
And what you want to grow up to be.
Things are changing since I’m the Mommy who’s mean
And you’re a 9 year-old boy going on 16.
I don’t miss the crying, whining or throwing yourself on the ground,
But I miss those first discoveries
The first touch, first sight and first sound.
Now you play outside with your friends,
You have cartoons and baseball in your head.
I miss being your best friend
And how we would read together in bed.
Guess I’m lucky because that’s all I miss
You still hold my hand and I still get a goodnight kiss.
But I’m not looking forward to the future day
When these moments we still have together
Will all fade away.

  1. You not miss them at all when you see all the great things yet to come. Don’t look back – look at the future!


    • Well then I’m in some serious trouble as my hair has been getting grey for the past 5 years. I pay big money to keep my hair this color 🙂
      Happy Mother’s Day to you too and stop by on sunday for this week’s Sunday Funnys – you’re gonna love this one!

    • Thanks – it certainly seems that lately I’m seeing more changes in him more than ever. Some days I miss that little boy you see in the picture in this post.

Let me know, what do you think?
