A Seaside Goodbye to My Son


It was just a
walk to the bay, where
silver water shines, and
steel wool clouds cover the sky
perfumed with the scent of the salty sea,
today it is the fragrance of parting.
You are my son,
Tall man and strong,
I see my son,
I see my boy,
in the man you have become.
I am content with who you are.
My heart swells like the sea,
inflated by this tide of love,
these few moments together
before you fly away from me again,
a free bird.
