Departing Sons

We raised them from infants and enjoyed their stay.
Through good times and bad our love never wavered,
But all good things end.  They are moving away
While we reflect on the times that we savored.
One has now gone, to a land where it’s gray.
He eats foods in Sweden that are oddly flavored;
The other goes soon to the western frontier.
We are happy for them, but we’ll both shed a tear.
