Lollipops, and having a turn, and a nice dress and a smile from the teacher
A look from the boys, an outfit that looks cute, giggles in the night, and a book that’s too good to put down
A ride to the party, a few cigarettes, music to die for, and secrets in the night
Someone who gets me, philosophy until 3 am, communal living and big boots that look cool.
The perfect graduation, the dream wedding, the cute little house, candlelight dinners for two
Baby’s brand new tooth, T-ball in the summer, watermelon seed spitting contest and the magic of Christmas
Phone calls late at night, discussions too heated, the first driving lesson, and schedules way too tight.
The aches and lovelinesses of the empty nest
The hunger for little ones
The hope for more time
The fear of the end
The joy at the end.
