Yesterday I was awake and busy for 24 hours non-stop. Which is my excuse for this being late.
One of the things I did in that time was see my 16 year old son off on a school trip to Japan.
And I did, actually, write this poem yesterday. I just didn’t get to post it.
And I haven’t written today’s!!
THE JAPAN TRIP
From the beginning
It’s been goodbye
To breast feeding
To packing school lunches
To being called “mummy”
To baking pirate-ship birthday cakes
To automatic hugs and kisses
At gate 18
As you board Cathay Pacific.
This is the saddest job in the world
