Go Swiftly – A Quadrille

Go Swiftly

Go swiftly
that I might mourn sooner
Leave me quickly so I will be free
from your discontent
You belong here no longer
I wish you well
in your pursuit of perfection
My loss is growth
already healing wounds
carved with your callousness

    In other words, “hit the road Jack.” “carved by callousness” is a great way to describe what people to each other. I wish her a quick(er) healing.

    Sometimes (sadly, far too often) Farewell is the best we can offer. Great response to prompt, Christine.

      Thanks dear Ron. Yes sadly we have all been there, I think. I envy those who haven’t.
