“Emptier Nest”

sometimes you don’t realize
how much you hold onto
someone or something
until you let go

man I’m gonna miss Kyle
tears fall every day
from this mommy heart
knowing what’s to come

even last night
he mentioned how it’s May
then he said it again
how it’s May

a certain sadness heard
a certain not much time left
a certain appreciation
of what we’ve had

I know kids move out
in this case
mom moved first

there’re even things
inside my heart
that won’t come out
in words

I suppose those are the tears
