We bring them into this world
and hold them in our arms
We laugh at all their antics
smile knowingly at their charms.

We glow with parents pride
On their graduation day
We weep at their weddings
Because theyíre being taken away.

Then all of a sudden weíre all alone
And we have lost all our zest
Thatís what happens to those of us
Who suffer from empty nest.

Itís hard to function, itís hard to smile
When the tears fall day to day
When your alone with no one home
And family so far away.

Then the worst time comes, the holidays
When you should be at your best
But thereís no one with whom to celebrate
As you pace the empty nest.

Never thought the children leaving home would hit me so hard. I spent years convincing myself that it would be a relief when they all moved out. Boy, was I wrong! They have become such good friends, that it hurts to have them so far away....Kathy

Kathy,
My littlest just turned eleven and already I can feel i
the emptiness creeping up on me! A good honest read, and at least for me an affirmation of what I am doing here at AuthorsDen to build something for myself before they are all gone and I am left with nothing.

Wonderful write on the topic Kathy...This is a high hurdle to get over, for moms especially, it's when you learn to fill in the empty places with friends, hobbies and whatever you always wanted to do but never did;-) All the best!
