|Sometimes it is just time to say good bye.|
We had known each other for a long time. He was my baby-sitter, my best friend, someone to whom I could turn when I was lonely. That's why I had to break it off. He just sat there, his one eye closed, and yet, I felt as though he were watching me all the while. As I reached for my glasses, I saw it. On the small table, by my bed, there it was, a list of things we could do together, (well I could do them, he would watch). Oh, there's my favorite movie, we could watch it together. Oh no! "That's how you got to me, once before," I said, cautiouly. "I'm going. My new friend is waiting for me and it's time we got to know each other," I reached for my headband. "You and I will see each other from time to time," I tried to sound convincing, "but we'll never be as close as we were." He just sat there, still not saying a word, pretending to be asleep. Sure, I thought, you can stay here, maybe a few of us will get together with you, once in a while. This is the way it must be. I wasn't sure, but I almost thought I heard him cry out, "No, No, don't do it, don't do it!" I was walking purposely past him, to the wall, and I pulled the plug. "That's that," I said aloud to no one in particular, "For at least the next hour, I am going outdoors to be with my new friend. Perhaps you've heard of him, he's call the sun! Don't worry, old friend," I said, patting the old floor model television set, "I'm not throwing you out, it's just time to make some new friends, and see daylight." I left my friend...my pal...my television set on it's own, to recover from a broken heart. Meanwhile, my new friend (the sun) and I took a walk to see what life really looked like. The end. Tweet
