He has finally gone away, leaving me sad and distressed.
Only to a Boarding School and not forever!
my friends console me
I nod my head, I truly understand y'know, I say to them
But my heart, my soul, the unlimiting tears
which keep pouring out
Will not relent!
For deep somewhere, they being my closest associates,like me - know
That until now, he-my darling son and me shared a very special bond!
And although this bond shall never be
the thought of his going 'far away forever’
strikes a discordant note.
And then what erupts within is but MELANCHOLY!
