The empty Nest


18 years I’ve lived with my daughter.
I enjoy every moment.
We did have tear and laughter.
I remember everywhere we went.
.
She has grown up now.
She is ready to fly.
She always makes me proud.
But this thought also makes me cry.
.
She is now off to the university.
She said that she is fine.
She went to UC Berkeley.
She also asked me to smile.
.
I’ve known the word ‘the empty nest’ for years.
But I don’t really understand.
Now it becomes very clear.
It’s hard but I’ll do the best I can.
.
You have more experiences than me.
Can you please tell me what to do?
I just hang on with good memories,
Can you advise me how to get through?
