Daily Poem – Aloha

September 12, 2014

Lei after lei encircled her neck
She smiling and accepting love
Family and friends gather to say, “Aloha.”
Wishing her Godspeed on her way to university
For her, the other side of the world
Known as Maryland

She looked so Hawaiian
So young
With layer after scented layer
Adorning her bronzed neck
As she bravely made her way down the aisle
Searching for her seat
Biting her lip and holding back the tears
Family and friends no longer there
Feeling so alone
Saying, “Good-byes”
All part of going to college
All part of her journey

Poems of Hawaii
