9 presents



they know what it means.

that bag full of presents.
no, not a birthday.
no, not christmas.

it means they're getting left.
left behind.
abandoned.
at least for 9 long days.
9 presents,
9 days.
it most likely will ease
their pain
(if there was any)
but mine?
i leave my heart in that bag, too.

but when your parents
proudly and honorably finish
a mission--
you've got to celebrate with them.
and mediterranean cruise it is.
will share with you
all the gory details
when i return.
