You'll Be Missed


We're going to miss you when you go
Your leaving is for the best we know
My hurting heart will never show

I'll miss that smile that warmed the room
An eerie sadness will loom
I think you're leaving much too soon

I hope somewhere our paths will cross
With you leaving, we'll all feel the loss
At times I know we will be lost

So I want to wish you all the best
Just wear that smile, you'll outshine the rest
I know for sure you'll handle any test

Is this a blessing in disguise?
Is your boss being wise?
Or is she looking through blinded eyes?

Very soon we'll all know
The proof will soon start to show
Was she right to let you go?

But if you feel it's best for you
That this time is long overdue
That you must try something new

So as you get ready to leave
You'll feel my eyes tug at your sleeve
That's just my silent way to grieve

Goodbyes are so tough to say
As someone goes on their way
A sad ending to any day

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
