wormhole

friends all over the world

successful, significant

working a dream

job, satisfied and justified

the work

that went in

skyping, texting

every year

happy birthday

dear

and on it goes, the wait

365 days more

for another 3 words

i wish i could

turn back time

talk about the school

parties, month in advance

drop by your homes

just to say hi, and

stay. long.

conspire against teachers

bear the burnt

snickering.

be unabashed

without care or

regret.

be kids one more

time.
