The Last Goodbye (poem)

Updated on January 6, 2014

Was this the place we shared our last goodbye

The foggy streets have moved within my mind

The clarities of memories declined

Till darkness helps imagination fly


What answers are yet lurking far behind

What was it which a heart could not deny

What is it that the silent scents imply

Conclusion to which madness was assigned


Yet I recall how tender was that kiss

The lasting tears she shared within my arms

With thoughts that I refused to understand


That life of precious moments came to this

As ever’s mist now temples all her charms

Was this the place where knife dropped from my hand
