Saying Goodbye... (A poem)

Updated on September 26, 2015

I Will Miss You...

Every time I say goodbye

My heart breaks and I cry

When I look to the sky

I think about that fun-loving and friendly guy


When I have to say goodbye

I try not to cry

And let my tears unfurl

When I think about that awesome girl


One taken by cancer

The other by a drunk driver

You can't help but cry

It's hard to say goodbye

      A very emotionally deep poem about loss.

      @ Faith: This is why I always tell my dad that I love him because you just don't know what'll happen until it's too late. This makes me think about the Counting Crows song, "Big Yellow Taxi." You don't know what you got til' it's gone..."

      Thanks for reading!

      Goodbye's are so very hard, especially when one did not have a chance to say goodbye when a loved one is taken suddenly. We must say all we love each day, as we never know about tomorrow. Beautifully sad, especially with the sad piano music with the video, adds much drama.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hi, FCA! Thanks for reading. The word 'goodbye,' along with the phrase 'I'm sorry,' is definitely tough to say and tougher when you feel like you'll never see a loved one again.

      Thank you, Mhatter99! I suppose that it gets easier for some people.

      Thank you for this. Wen you've said goodbye as much as me, it becomes easier.

      @truthfornow: It is. It hurts a lot, but you know that, someday, you'll see them again in another life and time. Thanks for reading.

      Goodbye is hard, especially when it has to be for good.

      @Kathryn: It is. You don't want to say it but you have to, ultimately. Thanks for reading!

      Oh, that is sad. Goodbye is hard, but especially if you can't really say it in time.

      Thanks, Wayne! You're right, the phrase 'till we meet again' is a whole lot better because, someday, we'll see them again.

      Till we meet again is better; but goodbyes are hard. Very nice piece.
