Mama and the goodbye man

KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK
THE DOOR ALMOST FELL DOWN

MY mama went with the
goodbye man ALL HER CHILDREN
slumbered 
close a hand

he wouldn't 
think of
leaving
her
behind

we awakened 
and found 
that mama 
had gone

a smile was 
all she 
left behind

she had gone ...
she went with
the goodbye 
man

    Hi, Janetta. This is kind of Mother Goosey, and I dearly love Mother Goose, child that I am. Be that this fine poem is regarding personal tragedy, then I'm sorry to be flippant. Congrats on the pick. Love, daver
