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.
