Goodbye and see you soon

This evening amongst hugs and goodbyes
Miss yous and love yous,
Waving until the car has gone out of site.
I was suddenly taken back through the years to
the last time.

A peck of a cheek
“Take care of mum for me”
Never a thought that it would be
The last time.

That's a nice little poem, Anji. The concentrated essence of a fleeting moment. I do like it.

I try not to think too often of the fragility of our relations (or do I mean relationships with our relations? Oh, you know). It is well expressed...

Anji said...

Thank you all. As I was waving them off, the last moment I saw my father just popped into my brain so vividly. We didn't always get on well so it was very precious to me.

That was a nice poem and so true.
One never knows.
In my case I never thought this day would come even though my parents told me it could happen any day.

Anji said...

A Lady's Life: Time goes so quickly, it is cruel.

A Lady's Life said...

Yes it is.Anji.
What I would do to have them in my life again. When you are young you have no time and then as you get older, the generation gap shortens.
And then suddenly, its over and you feel the heaviness come over you as it finally dawns on you that now you have to be the one who knows everything and lead where they left off. Its not a good feeling.

A Lady's Life: Perhaps I'm fortunate in that I live so far away now that I haven't felt that. I suppose that we all miss different things when we lose our loved ones.
