slipping through my fingers

sophie’s first day of kindergarten {september 19, 2012}. better late than never!

school bag in hand
she leaves home in the early morning
waving goodbye
with an absent-minded smile
i watch her go
with a surge of that well-known sadness
and i have to sit down for a while
the feeling that i’m losing her forever
and without really entering the world
i’m glad whenever i can share her laughter
that funny little girl

slipping through my fingers all the time
i try to capture every minute
the feeling in it
slipping through my fingers all the time
do i really see what’s in her mind
each time i think i’m close to knowing
she keeps on growing
slipping through my fingers all the time
