I had that dream again I had that dream again where you throw yourself out the window and I can’t stop you. All I can do is look down and whisper … But, that’s not what happened Not at all The last time we were together we laughed, we joked, we reminisced But when the doctor said: Ready? You looked … startled like you had forgotten that it was today. But you nodded, looked at us, wiggled your fingers, and said: Toddle loo And just like that you were gone. Free, finally, from the pain and the inevitability of more and worse. So, I am happy for you, and happy that you got to choose. Everyone said that it was the perfect way to say goodbye. Well, almost everyone. I had that dream again where you throw yourself out the window and I can’t save you. All I can do is look down and whisper … Toddle loo, my friend Toddle loo Photo and Poem © JD Cottier. September 2020 2 Responses Julia November 21, 2020 Oh Joc, I really liked this.
