Twas The Night Before Kindergarten

'Twas the night before Kindergarten,
And as he prepared,
Kyron was excited
And a little bit scared.
He tossed and he turned
About in his bed
As visions of school supplies
Danced in his head.

Erasers and crayons
And pencils galore
Were stuffed in his backpack
And set by the door.

His clothes were hung
On the chair with care,
Knowing that Kindergarten
Soon would be there!

In the morning it came
School starts today!
Would the teacher be nice?
Would he still get to play?
His face was all washed,
His teeth were brushed white,
He posed for his picture,
With eyes sparkling bright!

He grabbed his backpack
And hopped into the car
And dashed off to the school,
Good thing it's not far!
He let go of mommy's hand
That she would not bawl! (but I did!)
And then walked down the hall
And heard mommy promise
The teacher then greeted
Each one with a smile
And invited the students
To stay for awhile.

The room was all filled
With books, colors and toys,
Such wonderful things
For all girls and boys!

Kyron was playing
And as happy could be,
When he happened to look
And see his mommy,
And what to his wondering
Eyes should appear
But a very sad mommy
Who was holding back tears!
Her nose - so sniffy,
Her eyes - red and wet!
This was the saddest goodbye
Kyron had ever seen yet!
He ran to his mommy (and daddy!)
On the magical rug
And then sent her away
After one final hug!
He waved to his mom
From the door of the school,
"Don't cry Mommy!
Kindergarten is COOL!"
