Their Last Day.

Well today is the day,

The day when my fine neighbours move on,

Move into a new house

Nearer family from where they came,

Came to live next to me.

They entered next door

With one son,

They are now moving out

With two sons.

Seeing these young boys progress

Was an absolute delight,

They were always smiling,

Always busy in the garden

Playing and digging.

Now they are going

And I will miss them.

Such wonderful neighbours

Going further into their lives,

Where their future will be filled with love,

Love and wonder.
