Forty-somethings. I gave birth to them some 40 years ago.
They grew from me, with me, away from me,
Babbling, crawling, studying, marrying, working into middle age.
Once, I knew everything, made decisions, gave answers.
That’s changing. I listen.
My heart skips a beat! I’m receiving care, guidance.
A parent with loving sons, I have the bond of bonds,
Genes supporting genes, unconditionally, in a god-like plan.
