Kids, Grace of everyday amazing wrote a poem recently that seemed to speak to many of us, about how relationships sometimes continue from day to day, with a running inner commentary to accompany them. I loved this one! Grace took the beautiful photo on her banner, too. A talented girl!
Notes Before Leaving.........
If you should leave, don't make it on Sunday
When I'm baking chicken topped with butter-
Not on Friday, when I'm eager to come
home from work, drooping eyelids, aching thumbs-
Monday might be a good day, when my mind
dwells on unfinished work, like a sour rind -
Thinking of pay cheque by Thursday, time flies
like a beggar, as I file & refile -
Instead, pack your bags on Tuesday after-
noon, when I'm drunk with paints, pens & verses-
Hands sag like autumn leaves, forehead sweaty -
Outside, neglected plants sniffle on wet
Tissues, the lone tree snaps like rubber band -
I won't notice that you are gone - as planned -
