Robert Hershon - Sentimental Moment Or Why Did The Baguette Cross The Road?

Don't fill up on bread
I say absent-mindedly
The servings here are huge

My son, whose hair may be
receding a bit, says
Did you really just
say that to me?

What he doesn't know
is that when we're walking
together, when we get
to the curb
I sometimes start to reach
for his hand

Thank you so much for your beautiful poem. It brought me to tears, remembering how I love my kids more all the time. Just spent the weekend with them both, now in their twenties. The words of your peom captured my heart. Thanks, Nancy

Poignant and wonderful.

Beautiful. Makes me remember something my dad told right after my grandfather died. "I didn't realize he was old until I understood we had walked all the way around the driveway to avoid stepping up on a curb."
