Mom Writes Tear-Worthy Poem About Kid’s Growing Up: “The Last Time”
Little boys are treasures Who are worth their weight in gold And charm everyone around them From the time they're hours old. They're Mommy's little darling, They're a special pal to Dad, And they bring the very happiest days A family's ever had! My day-old son is plenty scrawny, his mouth is wide with screams, or yawny; His ears seem larger than he's needing, His nose is flat, his chin's receding. His skin is very, very red, He has no hair upon his head, and yet I'm proud as proud can be, To hear you say he looks like me. One small hand to hold in yours, One small face to smile, One wet kiss as he says "good-night" One small child. Catch the moment, put it in your heart The years too soon will fly. These are precious moments, more than money can buy.
Henry Vaughan was a Welsh Metaphysical Poet, although his name is not quite so familiar as, say, Andrew Marvell. This simple nine-line poem describes how the poet is filled with joy when he sees a rainbow, and how he hopes he will always keep that sense of enchantment with the natural world. This poem explores the wide-eyed innocence that a child has when they first look out on the world, which eventually gives way to a more jaded cynicism involving a lowering of expectations, especially towards our fellow human beings. It was written in , just after the end of WWII. Listen to Thomas read the whole poem here. This classic Heaney poem, published in his first published volume, the book Death of a Naturalist , is simultaneously about picking blackberries in August and, on another level, about a loss of youthful innocence and a growing awareness of disappointment as we grow up.
Growing up is hard to do. The challenges that a child must deal with throughout the life cycle are overwhelming. Children must deal with physical, emotional and psychological changes as they grow. There is no manual for growing up. In western society there are so many options given to children that they often feel confused and lost. We are not doing our children a favor if we do not provide guidance to them. Parents are there to help children navigate this confusing world.

Every family has hopes and aspirations for their children. Some may long to send their children to college if the parents have not had that opportunity. Others may aspire for a better life in another country. Sometimes there are conflicts between the dreams of the parents and the dreams of their children. Parents may have labored so that their children could have what they consider a better life only to have their children choose other options. This can be heartbreaking for the parents who may think that they have labored in vain, and stressful for the children who have their own dream to live out.
