(97) Goodbye Sarah Jane

(97) Goodbye Sarah Jane

A Poem by Chris Smith Welshpoetcs

Different faces shed tears
But all of the same man
He has lost someone
Who meant the Universe to him

He is, they are the Doctor
For so many years a hero
Vanquishing terrifying foes
Saving lives the best he can

But he is powerless this time
Unable to save his closest friend
Even he can not win against Death
When it comes in the form of cancer

Eleven men from different times
Eleven men who are the same
Wishing they could turn back time
But unable to do something they can't

Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith, if only you knew
How this wide Galaxy loved you so much
Somewhere a solitary metal dog cries
Saying the words "Goodbye my mistress".

In memory of Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith in both Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Aventures, aged only 63 and taken too soon.
