“I SEE OUR CHILDREN AS KITES” #poem

Children as Kites
Children as Kites

This is for every parent, care giver as school resumes for the new  school year…

 

“You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground.
You run with them until you’re both breathless…

they crash…
you add a longer tail…
they hit the rooftop…

You pluck them out of the spouting…
you patch and comfort, adjust and teach .

You watch them lifted by the wind and assure them that someday they’ll fly.

Finally, they’re airborne, but they need more string and with each twist of the ball of twine, there is a sadness that goes with the joy, because the kite becomes more distant and somehow you know

it won’t be long before this beautiful creature will snap the lifeline binding you together and soar as it was meant to soar…free and alone.” – Erma Bombeck
