The Emigrant

Pack carefully
there is no coming back
whisper tender goodbyes
give hugs all ‘round

Remember these people
you likely will not see them again
but they will remember
and there will be stories

A tear on your cheek
a catch in your breath
turn away now
there is no good future here

Step out
feel your heart race
the adventure begins
be brave
