Work, Play, or Stay?

It's been a couple days
Since I've seen what I've been used to.
From three to four to one so quickly;
Apologies if you have missed me.
I walked out the door when you were sleeping
And said goodbye with my eyes,
Left a message on your lids.
I tell the kid that this is growing up,
Owning up to showing up late
Or never at all.
I've got a necklace made of dates
Placed right next to one another,
Making time to be the son,
The longtime friend,
Or older brother.
