A Sad Farewell

Leaving a bunch of the nicest people Us guys have ever known It's sure a sad time for Cathie and I My, how the time has flown Seems like it was only yesterday We moved in with great excitement Thought it would be our very last move We were flying high, so jubilant But now that reality has finally set in The fact we'll see them no more It's a heavy heart we're carrying around As we finally close the door The final chapter is fast approaching I know we'll shed a few tears When the truck is loaded and we say adieu To the home we have held so dear A shiny new chapter lies just ahead An exciting new world to explore But I'll never forget the good times we've had I'll remember them forevermore! © Jack Ellison 2013

    It is difficult, Jack...thank goodness for the sweet memories which you and Cathie will not soon forget! Thanks for sharing with us your experience in this lovely Quatrain. All the best for your move! Love, Annalise

    I hope that your move is an easy one, as easy as it could be anyway! I know the memories will always be there but it is still difficult to leave the place where you made those memories! But now a different place will carry your new memories! I just loved reading this lovely poem this evening! What a truthful piece, Great Work!!
