‘Parting’ by Margie Brizzolari

It’s been a good day for entries into the September mini writing comp!
Hello and welcome to another new participant, Margie, with her beautiful poem.

Once again I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributes to these monthly competitions – I enjoy reading all the entries and discovering new blogs in return.

Thanks for these prompts. Here is my take on it.


older couple

Parting is not sweet sorrow
Tis the death of all tomorrows
Today you gaze at me and sigh
“My wife will soon be coming by”
I squeeze your hand
I understand
You’re leaving me
Moment by moment,
Day by day,
Inch by inch
And I never got to say goodbye.
