In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”
I have enclosed the photo of our former home. We were the lucky ones to sell a house in less than six months in 2011(in the US). Upon sharing the photo, I felt the need to share the poem I wrote during the process of selling it. Our memories of this house are strong, bonding my family.
Help – Family Needed
by Kim Hewison
My house needs a new family
It’s time for us to be moving on,
Back to where we came from,
Six hundred and seventy miles away.
It’s been a good house,
Warm in winter, cool in summer,
Protecting us from storm after storm,
Solid under our feet
When the earth shook around us,
It’s heard our laughter echo off it’s walls,
Sheltering us in times of sorrow.
Time to say good bye.
Time to hear the pitter-patter of new feet.
