The first child to leave the nest

is always the hardest.

The most bittersweet

due to conflicting emotions.

Though you still a few remaining

she was the anchor

and so the dynamics

of the household will be changing.

She promised to stay in touch

but you know

all children outgrow their parents

and so you hold back the tears

as you watch her drive away.
