Farewell with Humor
The words. “I love you,” brightly printed,@03/19/2018 Carol Welch
on a helium balloon,
the tasks thoughtfully completed,
knowledge we'll be together soon.
Though the words may be less soulful,
than daydreams would have them be,
there's the witty, backhanded compliment,
constructed with such glee.
The backward glance, nostalgic,
contains a playful smile;
the light way you show affection,
is dear, your own droll style.
See you soon.
