Another Suitcase


Another suitcase…yet again! awaits
I’m really excited mum
But when will this abate?
This constant migration seems to be my fate!

Don’t fret my dear
I smile…wishing to allay her fear
This is not your destiny
But a significant element of your life’s journey.

This move of nine
Exceeds your age by two
At such a tender age, You
Have adopted an adaptability to change

An attribute which will hold you in good stead
As you will find in your life ahead.

It’s only another suitcase
Consider it packed
With yet another splendid adventure!
There is no danger
For I
Am always with you
Now and forever.
