Farewell February

Thank you,
when what you gave was not enough
it was enough
that you gave.

It has been fun,
and laughter
and pain.

So long,
farewell
until we meet again.

Thanks Beau. I put some effort in making this as to-the-point as possible. The effect is clean and charming.

"it is the ruthless elimination of the inessential". I have often quoted that in relation to poetry.

This sums that up perfectly. A beautifully succinct and meaningful poem.

cheers,

I followed the advice, and wanted a poem that just said what I wanted to day, without the needless decoration.

I'm glad you liked it. I'll be doing more the the ruthless elimination from now on.

Thanks Jess :)
