Its Time To Say Farewell

The countdown has begun,
As you prepare to leave coming autumn.
You look excited yet subdued,
At times I catch you brood.

Yes, it’s hard to leave behind,
All you have known all your life.
Stepping out of home for the first time,
To go away thousands of miles.

So much change can cause anybody,
A lot of anticipatory anxiety.
If you get homesick and feel out of place,
We can meet and chat in cyber space.

use this time to expore the city,
with abandon like a nomad and a gypsy.
walk the streets, taste the food
talk to the locals, get into the mood.

take it as a big adventure,
learn, have fun, not just as a visitor.
you'll be amazed to discover
people want the same things all over.

love, laughter, caring and sharing.
soon you'll find your bearings.

Mamta would this be a mothers advice to a child who is planing to go away? I have done that so many times..............exiting for them nerve wracking for mothers. Yes there are plenty of ways to chat and keep in touch/ very comforting..........

Yes Madam, your last two lines hits the bull's eye! How I wish there was a coffee house beyond the fourth dimension in space, where I could chit chat with poets, saints and also Einstein! - Raj
