Farewell to Bella

Farewell to Bella



The last time I saw her

She hadn’t long to go.

Her dyskinetic movements

Clearly told me so.

Her once bright eyes, which shone and danced,

Were now dull, dim and grey,

As if to say that farewell time was not too far away.

Next day I learned that she had passed.

‘Twas peaceful in the end.

But, on the day that Bella died

I lost a dear old friend.
