Saw our last school play
Parting is such sweet sorrow
We will miss these days
Tonight, we attend our son’s last performance in a school play. We loved watching Luke in plays. Although he had zero desire to pursue drama in school, we sure did enjoy seeing him act when he was forced to. Tonight’s play was a hilarious summarization of William Shakespeare’s works, which pleased his English major mom. It was presented by the Honors Literature class, and it was perfection. Cheeky, inappropriate, and hysterical. And, of course, Luke killed it as Juliet.
And as I was watching the play, thinking about how this was the last time I would see Luke perform this way, this lyric was playing in my head:
“I can’t remember all the times I tried to tell my myself to hold on to these moments as they pass.” ~Counting Crows
