No Longer The Director

written by: Tracy Gregory



You once stood
Upon my stage
A player in the sand
I’d watch as you
Would twirl around
The living room again
The time did fly
And now I find
The stage is
All but changed
The sand is gone
The twirling stopped
The stage now rearranged
I look at you
Now and I see
I no longer
Direct your play
The world has now
Become your stage
You control
the play

The show goes on
I have no say
I sit among
The crowd
I see the play
As it unfolds
A stranger in your plan
I’ll smile with pride
As I recall
Your original debut
The sand, the twirls
The sunny days
I’ll smile
as I watch you grow.
