A little piece of me

Browsing through Instagram, I came across a post from one person that led to another. I usually read interesting posts but rarely comment.

This time, the post led me to another. To my amazement it was a challenge, one that I found very inviting, especially at this time of my school year (when my to-do list never diminishes).

A May challenge that asks for one bit of information a day. I found the right title for it, A little piece of me. I thought so, as by the end of the month I would have thought deeply about myself and experienced daily mindfulness at the same time.

I’m glad the post allows us to take a screen shot and answer the questions on our own or with friends. So here’s today’s ‘ask’ below.

I’ll wait till the end of the month to contemplate on all my answers.

Good Times

They left home

Leaving us here

Their rooms

Left

as it was.

Later on,

we realised

they’ll be gone.

Maybe, gone for good?

For when they return

it will be temporary,

here,

it may be to friends,

a hotel, somewhere,

where they live like

visitors, tourists,

foreigners.

Yes

We had good times

long chats, laughs, stories,

cooking together, movie nights,

games’ dates, celebrations,

long road trips to different parts.

Those memories,

Some captured in photographs

were moments

we never wanted to end

But indeed,

“All good things must

come to an end.”

We continue to cherish

the memories

they have left behind,

and took with them!

I selected this proverb from The Poem Farm ; “All good things must come to an end,” and wrote the poem.
