Dear Girl With The Curly Blond Hair

Dear girl with the curly blond hair
who was making those eyes at my son
my boy’s pretty shy, still, when he is near girls
so he might not, for you, be the one
you seemed like you might be quite sweet
when we passed in the grocery store aisle
I checked with my son if he’d ask you your name
but he shook his head. Not for a while.
Enjoy your youth while you can
Those childhood acts and scenes
too soon you will both into adulthood grow
but for now you are still both young teens.


While shopping, today, he passed by another family. One of the young girls in that family couldn’t seem to tear her eyes from one of my boys. This gave me the chance to tease my son a bit (not too much, I hope), but it was also a reminder that my son is quickly maturing into adulthood. Maybe a bit too quickly. I’m thankful that he’s not interested in romantic relationships yet…that’s another thing that will probably come far too quickly for this father to handle. So I can only hope that my son…and that girl in the grocery store…will both enjoy their youth while they can. Adulthood will come for both of them far too quickly.
