Leaving At Nine

Written by: Barbara Gorelick


Schedule says last train leaves the station at nine
If I hurry I might  make it on time 
So many mistakes and regrets flood through my mind
A new place and  friends I surely will find
No one here knows I'm leaving this place today
I doubt if they would care very much anyway
Self Pity  aside, perhaps I should think once more
Be strong and face what there is in store...

She watched the last train leave promptly at nine.
