The Last Hug

Pitter-patter pitter-patter
prompts a story
of a little girl
written sixteen springs ago
for an English exam paper

she visits her sick best friend
in the hospital and
sees a frail static girl
after shedding tears
kisses goodbye to leave

pitter-patter pitter-patter
the rain falls
down the path
she hears her friend
offer her an umbrella

a sadness in her voice
her friend reassures
of her recovery
they hug and part
to meet again

the next day, the little girl
humming happily
bounces along the path
to her best friends house and
finds people mourning

‘She’s gone,’ they tell her
Impossible! she checks the time
as the rain had started falling
pitter-patter pitter-patter
her friend had said her goodbye

    All this happened after she had died, so in spirit? because…
    “as the rain had started falling
    pitter-patter pitter-patter
    her friend had breathe her last”

    So beautiful, thank you for sharing this. I’m so glad I read it. I have a very similar true story I could share.
    🙂

  2. Nice heart touching Poem. I just feel that you could refine the last line. All said and done i am pretty sure you might have your own reason to keep thus.
