  • As You Walk Away

    February 20, 2015DishinandDishes

    I watched you walk to your car, a bounce in your step, that cap on your head. Don’t you know you’re walking out of my world? A thousand long miles away. You go, into your new world, a world of adventure and learning and sweat and possible danger. And I am bursting with pride, but…
