Landing in my eyes,

through an hourglass

 

sand is running backwards.

I awaken remembering                                                            

 

with optimism as they grew,

the voices of our children.

 

To nurture,                             

love begets the urge.

 

With certainty

I realize

 

the years line up like lives

we raise to eventually lose.

 

They just slipped away.

One more, kitten.

 

One more puppy,

we choose.
