Nine

Written by: Judith Palmer

Nine Months
Not nine and a half
Still hurting
Broken heart

Nine Weeks
Not nine and a half
Too old for that
Too old by half

Nine Days
Not nine and a half
Still counting
I know it's daft

Nine Minutes
Not nine and a half
Tears flowed
To, fro and aft

Nine seconds
Not nine and a half
Writing these words
And now its past.
