On starting school

As you walk away with his hand,
You walk away with my heart.
An angel in disguise,
A rainbow brightening my day,
I wave goodbye and he is gone

Into the wilderness that is school.
He travels with a skip in his step,
And I travel, homeward bound, with lead in mine.

I know you will take good care of him,
And his fragile childhood mind.
I hope you will make good memories with him,
Whilst he is away from me during this time.

I look forward to the day’s end,
I am eager to hear his thoughts.
I will treasure every sentence,
And hold them tight forever more.


  1. This is so lovely and heartfelt. And what a great thing to capture and look back on in years to come. I hope the boy is settling in well and that you're adjusting OK - sending hugs!

    1. Thank you! It's been a long and rather quiet week, can't wait for the weekend! Loving reading about your adventures, hope you're both well xx
