Door To Goodbye (poem)

Can you see the door close to our goodbye

So many and more the tears put away

So many before our hearts learned to stray

And no one was sure of the reason why

-

No time to explore what words had to say

No time to re-shore what pain put awry

The times that we swore to give it a try

Have led to the door before us today

-

Those reasons galore now fall from our lips

Wild passions now sore such flames to ignite

To even a score uncertain as this

-

And into this war a stranger known slips

A chance to restore our reason to fight

And see that this door is closed with a kiss

You write very good poems. I wish I could. Some of us have talent, and some of us do not. You are one of those who do have talent. Voted up.

A wistful good-bye, a door we don't want to open.

Voted up and beautiful. Goodbyes are always saddest when the door closes. This was lovely and with Roy bringing on the tears well what can I say super. Passing it on.

The only other singer who could convey more feeling in a song than Roy Orbison was Patsy Cline. A well-chosen video to accompany your poem.
