Day 6 – Sunday, Sweet Sunday (Valediction)

Today’s Prompt: Write a Valediction – can be funny, sad, poignant etc.

Hello again! I know that you will be able to tell from the title alone that I didn’t write my poem on Saturday after all, and have left it for Sunday evening… It’s rather a dead giveaway! I’ve also been playing around with my blog, and if any of you happened to be on it earlier, you’d probably have witnessed it changing again and again before your very eyes as I tried different looks and features out, and tried to acquaint myself with them. I hope you like the changes so far – I think they’re an improvement! Anyway, without any further ado, here is Day 6’s NaPoWriMo post.

Sunday, Sweet Sunday

By Angel Dawson

Sunday, sweet Sunday,

I love you so –

Yet you break my heart

Each week when you go.

Your minutes slip past,

Then your hours follow,

Leaving me to face

Monday and sorrow.


Sunday, sweet Sunday,

Why do you leave?

I bask in your sunshine,

Then am left to grieve

For the moments of pleasure

Which I hope you’ll repeat

If I make it through five days

Of slogging and sleet.

Having read through this now, I think it sounds less like a valediction and more like a lament! 😛 

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
