Motherhood and Its Tears

“Mommy why don’t you sing Rockabye Baby to me at night anymore?”

“Honey, that’s actually not a song that I ever really sang to you….”

“Yes you did. Will you sing it to me one last time tonight?”

And like that I’m in tears. Over the end of a ritual that started at the same moment that it ended.
