Haiku My Heart Friday

 

Picnik collage ryan 2 

Did I love enough,
Little one no longer small.
Tell me that I did.

i hear him
running ahead of you, calling back
over his splendid shoulder leaning into life,

without measure.

I am on the floor wailing with grief, love and celebrations with this powerful Haiku. If you visit me on my blog, you will understand why.
Yes, of course he knows. You did. And if he does not know...he will now.

I was just asking myself that of my oldest son today when I knew he was going to be on standby for riot control...
I am sure your son would say you did :)

And I wonder if I've told my Mom how much I love her.

Peace.

You love more than enough. In fact, non-stop and so you reap the fruits of your labor. So very happy for you.

You also love generously. I love you.

Ahem...How can you say that to me what you you said to me over on my blog?

Why, in fact I was just talking about you last night to dearest darling sisterfriend.

I do not want to just say hello. I was very tired yesterday, in fact quite exhausted that I was too tired to eat.

The weekend is coming. I am not on call. So!

Tsup! TSup!!!

This post brings tears to my eyes. Alex is learning to speak one of the Afghan languages now. He leaves all too soon. I understand this haiku so well!
