Stepping Stone Stranger (A Limerick Poem)

You gave me wings
The future me
Would need to get away

Taught me to fly
To say goodbye
When I no longer could stay

The sadness remains
The joy mixed with pain
My gratitude is strong

But lately it seems
We’re ripped at the seams
You sing a different song

The world has changed
Our values strained
My goal’s not one you see

Not hard to spy
Identify
The ways we disagree

I wish you well (and)
Time will tell
The way our stories end

But thanks for this
The work and bliss
I’ll always call you friend
