I'll Be Back To Say Goodbye

I'll be back to say goodbye,
for I'm not really leaving;
just going for a short time,
I may do a bit of grieving.

I'll mull over what you said,
that for us the end is near;
you have to find yourself,
I understand my dear.

And you will need to understand,
that I need time, like you;
to wonder where it all went wrong,
now that I've lost you.

I hope you find yourself real soon,
I can't throw away my life;
I can't toss aside tomorrows,
I can't eradicate a wife.

I'll be back to say goodbye,
if goodbyes are understood;
if goodbyes are set in stone,
then I will leave for good.

    Perhaps the word most often choked back......goodbye, the feared finality. Prolific and powerful. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
