Empty Nest, Redux

Daughter and grandson
Moving out today
For a place of their own

Divorce being what it is
It has been hard —

Even though, his young self will be here
Every weekday; still,
My wife is very sad

As her empty nest
Was temporarily refilled
Only to be “emptied” again —

For some loves don’t end
As easily
As marriages do

Our actual daughter and grandson, in our actual living room.
