I’ve never said Goodbye to a postman.
I’ve said Cheerio and Take care
and the odd See ya letter
under my breath,
but I’ve never said Farewell forever.
I’ve never stood at the door
and thanked a postman for his service,
for asking how my wife’s doing,
for remembering our son’s name,
for hiding precious packages in safe places,
for being a smiling reminder
that the world still exists.
Today is Saturday
and Colin works in the week,
so I’ve never said Goodbye to a postman.
I’ll have to think of another way
to get in touch.
