Ta Ta

It’s an exquisite loss, your going away,
and it’s also timely, I’m given to say.
You may find it inane that I’m saved while you’re lost,
but it’s true that some friendships come at a cost.
You’ve departed, it’s clear. This I so plainly see,
but your leaving has given me something back: me!


Prompt words today are timely, inane, lost and exquisite.

    Great statement of independence! I have to report that sharing your poem in my class started a very productive discussion and contributed to students’ understanding of material in a creative and amuzing manner – thank you again!

    Oh yes, there’s definitely a connection between your poem and my current situation – although my son wouldn’t have left if I hadn’t thrown him out and got a restraining order.
