My daughter will be going away to a school
far up north of Norway in a couple of days.
We are cleaning out her closets, packing suitcases
Talking laughtng and taking a break
with a game of Yatzy every now and then.
How will it be without her around the house?
Very quiet and strange.
Of course this is all we want for her
going out in the world and embracing it!
It's the way it should be, but it is still strange
and I will secretly be bringing some kleenex
for the way home...
