Farewell for now

I look at you

Laying there on the worn green couch

And I am filled with contempt

For you and you alone

~

You are worn and stained

Old and shabby

Though you have only been through 2 seasons

You may be useless in the near future

~

So pretty and purple

Not that long ago

And now you weigh me down heavily

You are simply too much

~

Too much for the sunshine emerging

The green returning

The birds soon chirping

Changing of the seasons

~

You get to go away now

Go back to the attic

Folded into a pile

Stinking of moth balls

~

Perhaps you will be replaced

next year maybe

But for now you can rest

folding in on yourself

~

Farewell my winter friend

Purple, stained, and warm

Farewell for now

Purple down coat
