Bags and Backpacks


Their bags and backpacks

Stand ready to go

As they grab their last night’s

Sleep at home for three days.

Where their adventure takes them

Only the bags and backpacks will know.

I did not check them

Since they are of the age to make

Such decisions.

Sadness will surely strike in the morn

When the buses arrive

To take them on this journey

Of theirs.

I wish them well and whisper

Sweet love to the

Bags and backpacks that will be

Where I cannot.
