First Day of School

Today was just the first day,
Of many more to come,
It marked a real milestone,
For your Dad and for your Mum.
It seems like you were babies
Just a week or two ago,
But now the time’s already come
To slowly let you go.
School’s a big adventure
Where you’ll learn and laugh and play;
I hope it will excite you,
Each and every single day.
Now the first day’s over
And you’re happy to return,
We’ll breathe a huge sigh of relief
And get set to help you learn.

[For my daughters Ellie and Lyra on their first day of school]
