Poem a Day-April 29

April 29
Never, Never Let Melli go!
Ode to a person named Melli

Her bounce and winning smile
That made our life worth while
Her laughter gone from my space
Where once it filled the place
Never, never let Melli go.

From Maryland she came
To meet Dr. John was her aim
To learn and study at his feet
She thought was really neat
Never, never let Melli go

Every day a new eating place
Even one with a fireplace
A change for stay at homes
Living like closet gnomes
Never, never let Melli go

Canasta was the game she played
A flair for cards she displayed
The white table’s empty now
We will survive somehow
Never, never let Melli go

Took Ella and the saffron
Camera Made by Cannon
“Mom” and lots of stuff
She really bought enough
Never, never let Melli go

So now we sit in quiet air
Wishing she were there
Laughing as loud as she can
But that’s not the plan
Never, never let Melli go

Upon our faces little tears
Our hearts having little fears
Life will never be the same
Melli has changed the game
Never, never let Melli go
