just one last look, dear,
another glimpse?
Fifty years of memories come and gone
…it ends.”

Wife sniffles into her tissue.

“Our home. All of this.
Stupid bankruptcy.”

Husband wipes her crying eyes
with tired hands
fighting his own tears
with hopeful smiles

“We'll never forget our memories here.
They'll join the next
from all our new adventures
to come.

                      we’ll be okay…”

He whispers, holding her close.

“We'll be okay.”
