I have never contemplated poetry before but this attempt has been made for my family: 😉
An Ode to The Folks
After two years at home
It’s time once more
To leave the sunny Shire
But please don’t be sad
Cos I am glad
I need to breathe
In the land that I love so much.
Mum and Roy are full of joy
That I am leaving them once more,
Two years have passed, they are aghast,
It was only supposed to be a year.
I have had a special time living with my folks
I just hope
They know how much.
We have shared a lot of fun and laughter,
Even though Mum shouts at her eldest daughter
-hang the washing out- no not that way
-do the ironing- turn the trousers inside out
-clean your room-
-you make too much noise
And there is a whole lot more,
But I adore
The time that we have had.
I thank you so much for putting me up,
Or putting up with me!
Thanks for the wine
Thanks for the gin
Thanks for the family shenanigans
My family- wherever I am
You are never far away
You are my all and I love you all
There are no words to say.
My sisters and brothers,
Like you there are no others.
Have seen Trev twice, it might be thrice
But glad I saw you at all!
As the song goes:
Am leaving on a jet plane,
Don’t know when I’ll be back again.
So be happy and no tears,
And let my last 3 days be full of cheers!
