When the Visit’s Over

Sitting and stewing 

Adds weight on

The mind.

When the past babies

Now grown adults

Leave

There is loss.

With fortitude

Beat the doldrums.

It helps to pamper yourself

By snuggling up with

A book and hot orange spice tea

With honey, of course,

Or tromping in the healing forest

With your faithful dog,

Or beautifying your nails

With a file and pleasant pink polish.

Visits are meant to end well.
