Saying Goodbye - Poem by Jim Yerman

They each had their moment alone with her…
wondering why it was her time to die…
They each took that moment to thank her…
to remember…and say goodbye

"You were a wonderful friend." she whispered
as a tear fell from her eye,
"and I will visit your memories often
Goodbye, my friend…goodbye."

"You were a wonderful Grandma." he whispered
as a tear fell from his eye,
"I will never ever forget you…
Goodbye, Grandma…goodbye."

"You were a wonderful mother." she whispered
as a tear fell from her eye,
"You gave me life and taught me how to love…
Goodbye, Mom…goodbye."

"You were a wonderful wife." he whispered
as a tear fell from his eye,
"My heart will forever be your heart…
Goodbye, my love…goodbye."

They sat together holding hands
as her coffin went floating by…
each one realizing they began to miss her…
the moment they said goodbye.
