PTSW: Sentimental Moment

Perhaps this poem by Brooklyn's Robert Herson will help my daughters understand me better. I know you are grown, but I also see those shining two- and ten- and sixteen-year-old eyes shining from your faces.

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   
- by Robert Hershon
