Goodbye (poem)

He knew his world was coming to an end

He saw it clearly written in her tears

A love a celebration of the years

Is stricken by the realms of let’s pretend


What words can put a meaning to his fears

What meaning can give reason to portend

To help a broken heart alone transcend

This cloud of pain till hope again appears


And in that long and lasting memory

When all that’s left is just to say goodbye

So far away from all the hows and whys


He stares ahead at all which now must be

And in a distance hears an angel cry

And there within his lover’s arms he dies

So sad. At least they were together when he was called to the angels. I think that's what I would want.

Being together until the last moment is so special.

Although you gave a clue in the first line, I still did not expect death to be the reason for the goodbye. This is beautiful.
