and so many dreams
I have for you, sweetheart
your road is paved
with solid bricks
in graceful patters
quick, but with imagination
relaxed, yet with passion
and always forward
The road you follow now
has too many curves
to my liking
even dead ends
but tastes differ
you sense life
and feel it your way
I let go of your hand
wave and smile at you
and watch while you take
a different path
with head held high
that in time
will surely become

You are so right…but if you let go with love, they come back with love…
Thanks for these comforting words, Claudia, much appreciated.
Seriously beautiful poem Marion. Love the image. Where was it taken ?
I took the photo December last year in the town where I grew up. This is the gate that leads from the Hoensbroek Castle to the outside, Jo.

A dear friend…whom I’ve yet to meet, someday…beautifully expresses what many moms feel as their children venture forth to find themselves. It’s difficult to let go…but do so…we must.
That’s so kind of you, Hugmamma. Thank you! x

Little explosion on my side…proves i’m worried (again) i guess 😀
Because deep inside, we are not Dutch, dear Karin… 🙂
Thanks so much, and please, try to stay away from fireworks. Use your worries in a good way by turning them into action. And if that’s not possible, then let go.
