Goodbye (poem)

Updated on July 22, 2015

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

      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.

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