I'Ll Be Back To Say Goodbye - Poem by David Lessard

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
