Two Suitcases

Two suitcases,
two pillows, five boxes
and one that's got books in
computer's all packed
and he's gone.

So will he
remember and get to
his classes on time
will he file applications
and plan for his future while I'm
feeling curiously sad
for the boy's grown to man
and lives out of
two suitcases
gone.

The odds are that he will, Sheila. It's tough to let go. I imagined my mother was as happy to see me go as I was to go. But she may have been as worried as I was when I sent mine off to college. Nah. ;-)
