The last thing I never want to hear

How did you go from IS to Was? Is it just the tenses? Or just a statement? Do you remember the name you gave me? It was just after my birth You aided to wash my infant head You talked a lot about peace You taught a lot about love You loved a lot about God Don't you think it's rude? To leave without saying goodbye? How did you go from IS to WAS? Please don't make me say it I just don't want to accept it Because the last thing I never want to hear is "Adieu" To Patience Nwozichi Eluwa

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God bless you.
