Four Feet and Then Some

Eight years old
that’s halfway to 16
a teen behind the wheel
for the first time
a junior in high school
a virgin no more
but, whoa, hold on, we’re not there yet
only halfway
eight years old
only second grade
four feet and then some
50 pounds
still has most his baby teeth
likes Pokemon, Star Wars, Marvel, and DC
he is innocent
pure
young at heart
wise beyond his years
he is my son

and me,
I need to slow down
and savor this present age
