Okay Then, Alright Then, Toodle-Loo, Bye-Bye



“Okay then, alright then, toodle-loo, bye-bye!” Sure love to hear that again My first wife would end each phone conversation With this familiar old refrain Once uttering these words of sheer finality It was over, finis, a done deal Even though their words are heard trailing off Time's up, no chance to repeal Was definitely over when this sweet lady quoted These charming memorable words Am I dreaming or did I actually just hear them again Can't be true, that's totally absurd! “Okay then, alright then, toodle-loo, bye-bye!” Sure love to hear that again Life has moved on but love to hear them once more That familiar sweet old refrain © Jack Ellison 2013

    Still think of my first wife, Linda, who passed away from breast cancer 14 years ago! Life is full of twists and turns... Cathie saved me thinking what was the purpose of going on... Cathie is the purpose! Huggggs, Jack xox

    Tremendous write this morning. I see your poems as more of an on going journal of day to day thoughts. Or Kinda like we're there with you having a coffee clutch get together every morning... Oh No... Is this a StarBucks moment?... Too bad I don't drink coffee... LOL
