FOR SOPHIE AND IZZY (our Rosie and Bean)
by Marie Elena
Four little loved feet lived a few feet away
‘Til they moved to St. Thomas’s lush Caret Bay.
Abruptly, an ocean and 2,000 miles
Created a chasm, and dampened our smiles.
But then they moved closer (no ocean to cross)
And the far-fewer miles seemed less of a loss.
“It’s all relative,” as the old saying goes,
But oh how we still miss our Bean and our Rose.
Now all of a sudden, life’s changing again!
We’re all looking forward to Saturday, when
Four little loved feet can stay put and not roam:
Our Sophie and Izzy are coming back home!
It’s hard to believe it’s been only one year
Since we said our goodbyes, and we choked back our tears.
Here’s move number three in a rather short time –
Returning our smiles, and ending this rhyme. 😉

How wonderful that your family lives near you again. 🙂
Thank you! It truly is! ❤
Just goes to show, no place like home!
Yes, yes, yes! ❤
Great post 🙂
Perfect, Marie! Both the photos and your accompanying poem, which could very well be my most favoritest I ever done read.
So glad for you that the fam will be living closer to you again. Rosie and The Bean are growing so quickly!
Thank you David! I miss you!
