You Listen

Kids grow up

They move out

They fall in love

Or have their hearts broken

Or not.

They get degrees

Learn trades

Explore their worlds

Discover new skills

And new adult things.


When they don’t know

What to do

They call home

And ask about what tires to get

What paint to use

What seeds to plant

What to do for everything.


And just like when they were kids

You laugh with them

You listen to them cry

You listen to them

You listen

You listen

You listen

And they listen too.

It’s a wonderful thing.
