Wherever Eye go now

Eye am saying Good Bye:

My daughter Eliza has invited me

to live in Thunder Bay —

she says there’s no rush

but for me there is —

Eye am no longer happy

in Nova Scotia —

my home Eye considered

since childhood.

Headed for My New Life

with my daughter Eye love

Eye will find My New Self

on the shore of Lake Superior

amongst the family of Eliza’s partner
