N.A. Updates


We're at the airport crying
my family, friends, my nest
My heart is beating
like a sacred drum
Be brave, be brave, be brave
But I am flying into oblivion
no friends to comfort me
a mighty space for a husband to fill
Good-bye New York
Good-bye sweet comrades
of my growing up
I'll miss you so
