Only five…
Still in many ways
A baby…but more…
Already showing
Independent streaks…
What he wants or not

If you had a child
You see it from
The other side…
We all went through
The day we went away
From the safety of home

Who are all these strangers
We may have wondered…
New groups of adults and
All the five-year-olds
You ever imagined…
It’s just the start of
Kindergarten…coming soon
To a school near you…

Mothers everywhere,
Thinking…way too soon,
A child grown and gone…
Wishing they could hit rewind
