Goodbye Poem by Leslie Ching


Rating: 5.0

We never thought
It would happen so soon
So suddenly
That things would end
So abruptly
That things would be left unfinished
That so much would change
That everything would be scrambled
And hastily rearranged

I never had a chance
To really say goodbye
And now, bouquet in hand
I kneel by your graveside...

(12/06/08-In memory of William Hsu,1928-2008 ~Rest In Peace~)

You clearly showed the sadness of lossing one so close, and thoughts that followed. Well done. Also, I am sorry for your loss.
