some are sitting at desks
as i am half-awake;

some are grumbling as
Moms drag them out of bed;

some are shoveling cereal
as the watch their favorite

all are your children,
Mother God:

worried about tests;
afraid of being bullied;
wondering how
the teacher will treat them;
hoping that special someone
will notice them.

be with them
as they go to school
and keep them
in your grace and love.
