Collection – November PaD, day 26

Collect, or collection was the prompt – must rush – busy, busy at work!! I have made my try, may try some more later when I have more time!!  ^_^

 

Strange Collection

I keep collecting children,
friends of my children.
I like it when they call me mom
or even by my first name.

They used to come over
and hang out when my kids
were still at home,
and I would feed them
and try to keep out of the way
and chat when they wanted.

Sometimes I was the stage mom
who helped make costumes for plays.
Or the mom who would drive everyone home.
Or the mom who they could
ask difficult questions
and not be judged.

But now,
even though everyone
is all grown,
sometimes
they still come over
just to talk.
