Hasta La Vista - Poem by Mary Amrutha

It's time to say goodbye
to the time we had together
It's time to say goodbye
to the desks and benches
where we sit together
It's time to say goodbye
to the good times we had together

In this turning of life
we gain many things
friendships and relationships
but this change of life
which I cannot bear
this change takes a lots of time
to cope with

The stone bench
where we sit together
and the library
and college canteen
everything becomes strange things
and we need to say goodbye to all these
which were once part of our life
we are not saying goodbye
saying goodbye means forgetting
and I don't want to forget you my friend

ciao! till we meet tomorrow

Topic(s) of this poem: farewell

    No permanent good byes
    For who leave with wet eyes
    At the cross roads of a life new and just starting
    There will always be pleasure and pain of parting

    Well written and keep your pen busy.......

    Hi Mary this good-bye poem is bittersweet. Are you graduating or is it the end of a term? In other words, are you leaving the school because you have finished your education or are leaving for a vacation and will return after?
    Your poem has a tone of finality to it, as if you won't be back. And the line that saying good bye means forgetting emphasizes the finality of graduation. But graduation ceremonies always look to the future, there is excitement because a new life is looming, you have to prepare yourself emotionally for what's to come. Your poem is a heart-felt and reluctant letting go - except I don't think you have let go! Let me know where you stand.

    I can imagine how painful it is to part from the alma mater, the fun filled college days, the familiar surroundings and the sweet friends.... College days is a time that has no match with anyother time... A genuine and beautiful expression of a student leaving the campus.... Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
