Planning lessons for September relaxes me. Knowing this isn’t a charade. A settled feeling to begin the summer.

Just because you were away

things did not change.

As we grow older

it is not less of a family

but more.

Togetherness is not always easy.

Growing pains,

tender feelings, hard hearts.

No one clattered on the drums this weekend,

the sounds that rattle me, push me outside

to take a breath.

I love you like the day you were born,

like the day you clutched my neck,

like the day I first laid eyes on you.

Some days are easier with space between us all,

But day is not a day without you.

And don’t you forget it.

This weekend a few of the scales fell from my eyes.
