Poetry Friday: Sold

In this space, children
grew and flew; spouses whirled love.
We each say goodbye.

I read this immediately after reading Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden (on Savvy Verse & Wit's blog). Both of them gave me a pang.

Those goodbyes can be so hard. Sometimes even when you know you are moving on to something really good. I hope that's true for you.

I felt this way when my parents sold the house I grew up in after many, many years. At the time I was living in Australia. Some days I still regret not having the chance to say goodbye.
