This one takes a wife, has a child and makes a home.
And that one finishes college and takes a job.
Now she packs the boxes full and readies for college life.
Years of parenting in this way, this mode now shifts.
Days of childhood,
Another frequency, another channel and I adjust.
Sometimes overlapping, static and I hear myself say out loud,
'How is it that the quiet in this house is so deafening?'
A blink and they are grown.
Time for the second act.
