These poems are for Kush

While you were away

While you were away, my son

I grew older like you

But not stronger like you

You grew more hair, and I grew less

I made more money

But I couldnt buy you more toys

I had less time

But I still remembered you anyway

I didnt visit you so much now

I didnt even call

I loved you so much

I let go of you

To be free

To grow up without a cloud

Someday when we meet

And you ask me why

I hope you read

These poems before

But not yet

Tis sweet the innocence of youth

Lets keep it that way

Shall we?
