Just Passing Through

Kids, come now, lets talk

Don't attach your self to me

I am just passing through

I will care for you and teach you

How to care for yourself

In my absence.

My stay, I can't give a time

I am just passing through

My time might come to an abrupt end

Hopefully, I will be warned when my time is up

I have enjoyed my stay, and hope when your time come

You will feel the same.

Please, I don't want you to fret my departure

I have known, for a while that one day

My stay would end

The tools I leave behind will sustain you in life.

Come now, let me teach you how to use them

Because I am just passing through.
