Too Late?

Living so far from home
At first does not seem bad –
Enjoying all the freedom,
Away from Mom and Dad.

But when years turn to decades
That speed so quickly by,
I think about my family
And heave a great big sigh.

That sigh conveys so much
Of what I’ve missed these years:
Births and graduations,
And happiness and tears.

That sigh also represents
The friendships that have waned
And the Louisiana life
That once was so ingrained.

But can I move back home?
Have the changes been too great?
Can I readjust my life?
Or is it simply just too late?

Countdown to Elianna!
