Empty Nest

Empty Nest

Toothbrush and paste
Contacts and case
This and that discarded in haste

Handsome grad in cap and gown
Do rag, bling, waist half way down
Enough no more stop foolin ‘round

Password ready on the Dell
How long ago . . .it’s hard to tell
Now silence rings the loudest bell

The chubby babe of yesterday
At college dorm room miles away
Never coming back to stay

An empty room . . . an empty bed
All aglow in disco red
What was it ‘The Prophet’ said?

He’s the arrow
I’m the bow?
Yet the hardest thing is letting go
