You Can’t Go Back

Such a sincere request

Help you while you developed a new skill set

It was my old skill set, coaching

Loaded you up with books and suggestions

Knew your attention to detail and people skills

Would probably do the trick

Not long into the mentoring

Old feelings flooded back

There was my way and that was the only way

To get the job done

As the season unfolded and I watched you

Grow into the challenges of coaching

I had to accept you were actually better than I

The game had changed and become more challenging

You made them be a team and grow too

I had opened the door to coaching again

Only to find a new coach in front of me

So satisfying for a parent.

Well done Emily!!
