Lament for Spaces

It's finally come,at long last.
The Day of Space's now is past.
the site that saw, those first steps.
Who shared our joys, hopes, and fears.
Help wipe away many a tear.

Lo, many of us a world apart,
Forged ties of friendship, in our hearts.
A cry for help was always heard.
The answer, always by someone given
A warm loving, caring place.
That now deceased,lamented Space.

We fought a battle, blow after blow,
Against everything Microsoft, could throw.
We kept our cool, we learned anew,
We stayed faithful, those  stubborn few
But I guess, we really knew,
The bell had tolled, the dice was cast.
The death throws, had come at last.
The fates had spun their final thread.
Spaces, is well and truly dead.

I don't like WP much far rather have blogger, but some things are still unfamiliar e.g finding your friends, but no doubt we'll become used to it, we've no choice really have we? take care and do pay me a visit.
