As you head out the door
on your first day of year eight
I want to say to you all the things
that every mother feels;
to give you all the advice
and support,
to tell you I’ll be thinking of you,
that I’m so proud of you,
that you will do amazing things.
I want to tell you
to hold your head up
and don’t lose your confidence,
and hold back the tears
when you become frustrated.
I want to tell you
how very loved you are.
But as usual my words fail me
as I kiss you on the cheek
and say “have a great day!”
