557 : A Regret

A Regret

The position was an honorary one,
The pay, at best, was lean.
With time, you had to to sever
The bonds that ran between.

And yet, I will not forget,
Never regret, 
The smooth and, too, the rough.
Sadly, I realise, now it’s done,
I never thanked you enough.

  1. Read this with the wrong mindset and you could think I was being sarcastic about the need to sever. This is not the case. It is genuine appreciation, never fully expressed.

  2. Was this your muse? If yes, it seems to have had a positive impact on your output.

    1. Maybe a Muse is functional and not necessarily physical.

    A gentleman to the end ...!
    Me? I would have been gleefully tilting the pedestal.
    A sweet denouement.

  4. Thank you is one of the words I don't think we ever say often enough. And I don't think (so long as it is honest) it can be said too much either.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
