To my last decade a Valediction.

I cannot say that I am sorry  to see you go

I have found you hard to cope with, but this you know.

So much have  we weathered together through this time

we have crawled through some valleys and had some mountains to climb.

Since I have been with you I have waved goodbye to my youth

I railed at the facts of life and fought the black dog and now I have accepted the truth.

You were there when I broke my back  you laid by  my hospital bed and whispered all night

I wept with frustration and fear you encouraged the black dog to attack and strike.

You told me I may never walk again, to give up and give in  but I would not listen.

You have done your best to hinder my progress  but I have beaten you, see my tears of pride glisten.

I have fought you and the black dog and I have beaten you in to a cocked hat.

I have out grown you and broken the ties you had held on to so tight. I have cut them what do you think of that!

I hated you you from the moment you arrived , you have done your best to beat me but I have survived.

So goodbye to this decade of my life  you have done your worst you dished me such dirt and made me feel cursed.

So goodbye, God bless, good riddens , adeiu. I shall never  ever let things get me down again like you do.

This year I shall be on to my next decade so I shall bid  goodbye. Take the black dog , HELL can have you.
