The lunches are all made, just the way you like
Apple slices peeled, chocolate milk mixed up just right
Sit down to breakfast, still waking up
Bowls of frosted cereal and sausage with syrup
"I'm gonna take a shower, you guys get dressed"
Put out some clothes that match, hope for the best
"Get on your socks and shoes; coats and hats and gloves"
Fill their backpacks with homework and a Hershey Kiss for love
Drop them at the front of school. watch them run away
Reach across to close the door and drive off to my day
But before I leave I'll box this memory
Where happiness won't fade.
