I Hate Goodbyes


I hate goodbyes
How they have the power
To bring tears to my eyes
How the simple word
Makes your heart break
The earth beneath you
To tremble, shake
I hate goodbyes
How they make my throat close
The words refuse to say
Everything your heart feels
Even though it knows
What its about to lose
I hate goodbyes
How they mean so much
They make your soul
Crumble to dust
You don't want them to leave
But you can't find a reason for them
To stay, you can't keep
Them beside you
I hate goodbyes
I would rather
Say 'Hi'

    I try and try to avoid saying goodbye... Instead, taking a smoke out back by the tool shed. But my tears and the arcid smell give me away and I'm faced with the cold heart reality of goodbye. I'd rather die. - fantastic ink Kelsey.; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
