another scene from real life

my child is back in rehab, and
i’m headed out of town;
there isn’t that much more to say,
although it has me down

i wish my heart was large enough
for all i’ve come to feel —
i wish that i could know that time
was always sure to heal

for i’m a slow reactor, and
i do not know always know
what i should do, or say, or when
it is just time to go

but all i want’s what anyone
would want their child to find;
a growing life,
identity,
and happiness
of mind
