i love this poem because it is related to our daily life when our parents become worried about us more than usual; but life will be okay and they should respect our life and our choices.

This is a beautiful poem saying basically that children and their parents must grow apart for them to truly grow themselves. It also mentions the hope that the children will come back, for help or to just say hello. It's a very comforting poem for parents whose children are moving out or away.
