Sadie’s Termination

Sadie stood pink and dripping wet

From her long hot bath

As naked and alone

As she would be after

She and Jane said their proper goodbye

It was planned for noon

So Sadie had started early

Waking with the dawn

To cook and wrap her gift

Now she pulled her dress

That had been lying on the bed spread

Down over her warm damp skin

When the doorbell rang

Sadie knew she had just an hour

To hold onto the one she held so dear

Just like any of their luncheons

Jane took her place at Sadie’s table

But this time Sadie pulled her chair to be a little more near

Jane ate her soup

And Sadie poured the tea

A very special blend of both their dreams

Then Jane shed a tear

Caught up in the moment

As Sadie placed her gift down by the tea

Jane unwrapped her present

Then she gave Sadie a better one

Now both women had hearts that smiled in love

So as they both were finished

They got up from Sadie’s table

Said “thank you, goodbye”

And gave each other one last long hug.

    Easy to follow and to hang waiting for the final words… Sad in a way, for in my years I have seen too many reasons that this goodbye might have come… Thought provoking for sure….

        You are welcome for the words and I hope you feel the encouragement. Been there, done that…. probably won’t be the last time. But use the words, pain or pleasure, let them out. Some of the best writing comes from emotion, use it.
