MCCOY'S FAREWELL SURPRIZE
By Kathy Mezzel
Disclaimer: The characters belong to paramount,
but the poem belongs to me.
The five year mission had ended,
the crew had said their goodbyes;
It was then that Spock walked up to me,
An inscrutable look in his eyes.
I had given him a journal
of feelings I tried to hide;
All the feelings I had for him
that I couldn't keep inside.
at each other in silence,
there was no need
He nodded toward the bridge's door
then we began to walk.
We went to the observation deck
we stood and gazed into space;
suddenly, he embraced me--
and my heart began to race.
We stood like that for a moment,
though it seemed like eternity;
I knew that every detail
would be etched in my memory.
Spock had given me his friendship,
his advice and his loyalty;
Now, in farewell, he had given
(the one where his liver should be).
