An excellent last line. There's an emotional power to this.

I thought I had commented on this one. There is nothing like the love of a child, it seems though as they age the love shifts and we become less their focal point.

I'm a sucker for a haiku. I enjoyed this one!!

This has made me feel a little teary. Those precious moments we have with our children are so fleeting. The haiku form fits the sentiment you are expressing really well. Great work!
