Poem: Each and every stepping stone along the way
has led up to this most important day
The day you go off to college
and become "Lttle Miss Independent"
While we are left wondering
"Where in the world all the time went?"
In the meantime, in between time
we'll do what parents secretly do
and worry, worry, worry
the whole year through
Are you eating right?
Staying up all night?
Showing up for classes late?
Getting along with roommate?
Do you have too much to do?
Is your laundry turning blue?
Do you feel safe in the dorm?
Enough clothes to keep you warm?
Are you making friends and having fun?
Are your assignments getting done?
One thing that we know for sure
you have all the "SMARTS" that you need
To make it through these next four years
