WELCOME TO THE 22ND LETTER OF
THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2015:
ONCE AGAIN I HAVE CHOSEN A SONG TITLE
AND WRITTEN ONE OF MY OWN POEMS:
RECORDED BY SYLVIA:
One Wednesday I decided to visit my son,
Who resides in Sunny Spain.
My batteries I needed to recharge
Also to get away from the UK rain.
I took the 10-05am flight from Bournemouth,
The flight was calm and smooth.
When I arrived at Malaga,
It was so crowded one could hardly move.
My son was waiting there for me.
I hadn't seen him in over a year.
He gave me a big "Bear Hug"
Which reduced me to tears.
Arriving at his apartment
I was greetd by Angus the dog.
Angus is a basset hound,
So solid as a log.
We then went for a meal
Joined by Kelly, my son's wife.
I am very proud of my daughter-in-law
Seems I've known her all of my life.
We chatted for hours
Catching up on all the news.
Suddenly I was aware of my feet,
Ah, those blessed new shoes.
The next day they took me shopping,
We also visited very"Old Spain".
Way up in the Mijas mountains
It was so beautiful , hard to explain.
The evening, another meal out,
Joined by Jan, Kelly's mum.
A lovely time had by all,
I was pleased I decided to come.
The next two days were spent alone,
As both had jobs to go.
Angus the dog and I had fun,
As to the park we did go.
The weather was beautiful,
Hot, not a cloud in the sky.
I met up with some old friends,
My how the time did fly.
My last night there
Out for another meal.
My waistline I will have to watch.
With my tummy oh so full.
The next day I arrived home.
After an emotional farewell.
I won't leave it another year
That's a promise I can tell.
