Black suite with polish shoe
Trainside there ’side train true
Passengers on platform there
Excited some leave perceived care.
Train is boarded with ancient car
Old and tired and travelled far
Complacent to next station stop
Experienced to step box drop.
Surprised not at woman proud
Waiting platform upon not loud
Boarded train recognized faint
Beyond the age and social mask paint.
Collecting tickets same ol’ routine
Smile of Woman unmistaken seen
Travelling to learning university
Past ‘Wee One’ now a woman be!
With hugs from heart an’ seen in eye
Wee One no longer
Much strength imply
Alas. Tears do not lie.
