For this week's Saturday Rhymers theme: Leaving Home.
When I go back and stay at my Dad’s place,
It’s great, but it’s no longer home.
I struggle to get my own kids off to sleep
In the room that I once called my own.
They watch cartoons, just as I did
Two sofas, three tellys ago.
So much is the same, yet so much has changed,
Though I try hard to not let it show.
Grandad plays lego and trains with the kids
I love it that they have such fun
And after their bedtime we sit and drink wine
And sometimes we talk about Mum.
