Dedication: To all parents! Of daughters and sons!

While digging through some older and forgotten papers, of mine, I came across a poem I must have written in 1998. The year when my son went away to college. 9 years before writing and posting "Our Grampa Ed" which should be seen as the tandem piece to this.

For weeks, when alone and at home, I would actually cry about losing him to his newfound adulthood. Though I was most happy for and proud of him. Recognizing the arrival of a new and future reduction in the frequency of our time/s together made me sad. Changing the nature and definition of our father/son relationship as well. Forever more.

The photograph is of my son and grand-son(born: 2007).

Excitement Inspired In His/Her Time

By

E. J. T. Bradley

*

Let the Spirit that guides

Take you to where,

You'll be with others

For whom you care.

*

Hope all,whom you meet, are

Not from a zoo

And all of them will

Care for you too.

*

Your college success!

Triumph! For you.

Hope it's not "Good-bye!"

Forever too!

*

Now! What will you do?

Where will you go?

Just once in a while,

Please let us know!

*

When places afar can't

Make your soul burn.

Many! Right here!

'Wait your return.

*

Your future success.

Who can say "When"?

"Long time, No see"

"N'est tres bien!"

*

By now, you must think:

"What a strange poem!"

From one far away.

But no longer know'm.
