The Last One

I’m reasonably sure this is the last one
With me I think poetry has finally done
I’m not sad at this passing it just has to be
Nor am I looking for anyone’s sympathy

It seems these day’s as I start to grow old
The words seem no longer themselves to unfold
So a part of life is over a page is turned
Another part of my life is burned

It’s  like the losing of a loved one
Can’t believe it’s finally gone
The words that once were my joy
Gone like a child’s broken toy

All the friends I’ve made along the way
To whom I’m going to find it hard to say
Good bye and thank you for all your comments and such
Of which somehow I found my heart you did touch

So if this is the end as I suppose it must be
I hope I have left behind some glee
The last on is written it’s down here in pen
Thank you’re god you won’t hear from me again

    Sometimes with me I just need a little break and something sparks an idea and that idea seems to find its way to a page in my notebook...I hope that your sage will return...Thanks for stopping by..Your presence at my work is always uplifting..Sara

    What? This is only a thought!!!Right??? You are very much appreciated Owen! I love your writings...They ring like church bells on a cool summer breeze. If need be...Take a break. Then once those words start flowing again...Just let them fly! :o) You will be missed if you do step away. But what may be...Will be.

    I sure hope this is just a fictional poem Owen, I would miss you if you were gone, hopefully you will re-consider, I have often felt this way too, and at times, I wonder why I'm still here, but remember once a writer always a writer, take a break, but for goodness sake, don't say goodbye, love xxx

    This is beautiful, but I can't believe I'm reading this. You can't be serious. May I say that you are not old. Just take a vacation and come back. Your poetry is great so don't quit...... Lucilla
