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

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
