Its Time To Say Farewell
The countdown has begun,
by Mamta Agarwal
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.
