Five

Five

You are new and grandiose
Bringing with you change
Big kid stuff
Like kindergarten
And learning to read

Five

You are more of what was sweet about four
Tea parties and princess dresses
“Pretend that…” opening a new world
To your eyes and heart throughout each day
While always having a song in your heart

Five

You make me feel a little sad
Because it means that little
Is that much closer to going away forever
While at the same time it means
We get to grow more together

Five

I don’t dread you
But I feel the emotional tug
That comes with letting go of what was
So we can make room for what’s to come
To learn and laugh and love

Hello, Five
You are welcome
Because you are going to be a part
Of one who captures my heart
For the next year of living
