Soon we will part,
I will miss you with all my heart,
But it won’t be long,
Until we reunite on the other side, strong,
And again you will leave dear,
Waiting for us all here,
Lonely and far away,
Until we come home to stay,
But while you are there,
‘Oh’ the family adventures we will share,
Across the big wide sea,
As one big happy family,
Among others that love us,
Making memories and thus,
Be hard to leave again,
Our beautiful vacation over then,
But I am an expat,
And all of this comes with that.

It must be so hard going to visit and having to leave again! A beautiful poem x #prose4t
Thank you Tracey. Yes it’s amazing, but so many mixed emotions!!!

Oh, this sums it all up so well. It’s hard to leave in both directions x Lovely poem Jenny x
It really is. It’s like being pulled between two worlds and two feelings. So hard.
I can’t imagine how hard it must be – a bit like being pulled in two I guess?! But it sounds like you cope well! #prose4T
ovely words,I hope you all get together again soon.
Thank you ever so much! Me too!

From one expat to another, I can relate to this!
Ahhh bless you!!! It is hard sometimes.

Can’t imagine how hard it must be to feel pulled in two directions. This poem sums it up beautifully x
Thank you! It does get hard in special moments that you can’t share or in hard times when you can’t get the hugs.

I find it hard enough living 2 hours away from my Mum so goodness only knows how you cope! Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought lovely x
Thanks Vicky. It is getting harder and harder with kids now and knowing they can’t be close with their gramma.
