The farewells are a sensation

very strange in my

knowing that I will not have a person nearby

not being able to look at it or see her.


I remember the day I had to say goodbye

to the most special person for me,

my mom feel her face wet from so much crying

knowing that for a long time I would not see her.

the farewell was hard and painful.


during the trip that only lasted a few hours

I felt happy, nervous, and anguished

when I arrived at the airport, I was a little scared

because I did not understand anything,

but in the distance I saw my dad waiting for me

with a huge smile.


I hugged him and I saw a happiness in his eyes,

to see me after so long

in the car ride from the airport to my new home,

I had my eyes lost in the beautiful city

I imagined walking through all those places


At that moment

I felt that it would become my new home

and so began a whole new journey.
