The Present

 

Thank you for the present, it’s beautiful.
I’ve kept it in my room all these years.

Everyday I look at it and think of you.
That silly green spiky thing, just like us.

I heard you died on June 8th.
I opened my curtains. Birds were feeding in the garden.
Parrots. They were so noisy and funny.

About sophiewellstood

Teacher and writer, sometimes the other way around. Some of my writing is traditionally published and in bookshops, as well as online. I've put some poems for younger people / lapsed adults here, and some proper swearing. I hope you enjoy.
