Today is my eldest child’s first day at High School, and so I have written a poem for her.
Have a great day, Elliot!
Today we begin a new chapter
In the journey of childhood and life.
You will leave me behind once again
But I will always be there at your side.
Off you go to High School
I know you will love it there
We visited the building already
We planned and we prepared.
You have a smart new uniform
New shoes, and bag, and blazer
Your friends are waiting to see you
Your sister will miss you with her.
We don’t know what lies ahead
But we know that you are ready,
Confident, strong and assertive
Yes, my darling, my daughter.
