Final Goodbyes Are Said With No Regrets Poem by Ivy Christou

Final Goodbyes Are Said With No Regrets

Rating: 5.0

I think this is the point were goodbyes
Sound appropriate and are said with no regrets.
It is a sign of wisdom if you know
When to move forward and leave some things behind,
Keeping happy memories as a fraction of your well being
And saving the unhappy ones in the folder
of future reference.
And it has nothing to do with giving up on people
But it is all about giving your self a second chance
Before you give them all away with no return.

I will not pretend that this is painless
And that it was an easy decision to make.
We went through rainbows and light rain,
With butterflies and green eyed monsters in between,
And I have learnt to appreciate that
Holding on to a balloon
Does not always mean that
You are going to reach the sky.

I end this with out blaming you or me,
People build walls between them all the time
And I hope that when I wish you all the best
In the future I will truly mean it.
