Ten Days Left—Give or Take

Leaving for grad. school

This is a unique
and valuable time
never to be repeated
when you are your age
and experience
and I am mine.

When what we have to offer
each other is obvious
on the mirror surface
like a perfectly ripe juicy peach
plucked from a well-nurtured tree

we planted long ago.
Though you must go
to continue to grow
I wanted you to know
I love you so.
