Little Returns

Putting in moments of

parenting,  gains and losses

add up

 

The hours of chauffeuring

picking up and dropping off, rush

and wait, items left behind

 

Teaching them to help, playing

a long game, banking

against efficiency

 

Measuring days by

teeth lost, shoe size

and how quickly

they grow

 

This is it, childhood’s prime time

the real estate of life

 

Success, luxury, vanity, none

compare to the blessing

of kissing good night

my child, safe

 

For the richest memories, sweet

and surprising, the confidences told

between stories, you

had to invest

the time
