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.
