How I Go

Sitting in the living room

Putting together Cassie’s graduation playlist for her iPOD

Reading lists of “current” songs and not recognizing them

Feeling old

Thinking about college and growing up and leaving home

Wondering what her college days will be like

Wondering how her life will be

Remembering when I was getting ready to go to college – the excitement, the sheer terror, the mixed emotions

Remembering my first night away from home at school – feeling free, and happy

Hoping Cassie stays safe, and happy

I could tell you the wildest of tales
my friend the giant and traveling sales
tell you all the times that I failed
the years all behind me
the stories excelled.
and I'm drying out
crying out
this isn't how I go
