Farewell poem

Updated on December 20, 2016

All those years passing by,

About to venture to a world anew,

Still feeling my heart dampening,

Like my life sundered into many pieces...


As i remember now,

When I was falling,

You were a rock to hold on to,

When I felt timorous,

You stood by me,

And.....that was all i needed.


Sharing our hopes and aspirations,

Helping each other up,

By being a platform for others,

We ventured our own lives.

Now that days aren't gonna blossom again,

And i remember again,


When i felt like weeping,

You made your shoulder wet by my tears,

When i felt gloomy,

You cheered me up,

By acting like a fool.


And now looking back,

Those wonderful school days,

Now i could only dream that,

I could just go back.


Even if we fight among ourselves,

We know that we love each other,

As much as we love ourselves,

Discovering that unity is strength,

Realizing that the time is up,


Facing the blue ocean of opportunities,

Trying to make up a decision,

Even knowing that separations are to face,

But still a dampening feeling,


A longing to go back,

To hold on tight what i miss now,

With memories to cherish forever,

Farewell my dear friends..

      Same question as Gypsy here..why farewell to friends whom you miss so much???? Friendship is a bond for lifetime. So its to cherish rather then to miss.......lovely work nevertheless...

      '.... A longing to go back,

      To hold on tight what i miss now,

      With memories to cherish forever,

      Farewell my dear friends..'''''
