A Daughter Leaves for College

For eons or mere minutes on the clock
among marble mansions on a cliffside walk
or sewage-filled streets in a shantytown,
if you shimmer in silk or wear a paper crown -
110 degrees or snow sideways blowing -
should you be lost or know where you're going,
whether friends are plenty or few,
I will walk with you.

    – This is exactly what I told my daughter. They are currently under online classes but will probably have face-to-face classes by early next year and as a mother who fears about the pandemic and other things, I initially got worried because she’ll be living in a dorm without me and only with her roommates. As early as now, I’m having separation anxiety. But then again, that’s the reality of it. Oh well. 😊 Thank you for this.
