goodbye


it's 12:01 am here.
i found myself an empty square foot
on the couch,
nestled among the bags of clothing,
the suitcases and the boxes.
i'm done for the night.

but the night is not just any other:
it's our last night in this,
our first apartment ever.
we moved in here
almost 8 years ago,
a few months after we got married,
and spent most of that first year here.
i wasn't sure then that we'd ever be back,
but sure enough,
we showed up on it's doorstep
just three years later, babe in arms.
and since that time,
we've added two more babes in arms.
and though it's served us well,
our time has come
to bid farewell.

and so i share with you,
upon leaving,
the four corners of my home
where we have giggled, jumped, screamed,
studied, danced, baked,
taken videos, read, kissed,
planted flowers,
dreamed, sang, reminisced, cleaned,
ate, played cootie, learned,
worked,
and lived.





and with the fondest of memories,
we say goodbye to you, dear home!
