Today, I felt a sense of legacy

It was an important day. A major milestone. A once in a lifetime day. My son had his first day of high school. As a New Yorker, he commuted on the train on his own to school. I was a worried wart through and through. I had him text me at each major pivot point in the journey. I made him take a few selfies. And the feeling I felt upon seeing his piercing eyes looking back at me, at the front door of his school, was overwhelming. It felt like I put on a new pair of glasses that had been adjusted for further clarity and crisper vision.

I’ve always seen you for you

Unique, sure-footed, loving

Today, on a momentous day

I saw me in your eyes

You have my eyes

You have the seriousness

You have the determination

You have the willingness to embrace the situation

I was struck to see this clearly

I’m dumfounded by you being me

I always more than loved

Today, I felt a sense of legacy
