lilyjohn Posted October 31, 2009 Share Posted October 31, 2009 Ihope you don't mind if I share a poem I wrote in 2005 I was so deep in my grief at the time,. I hope maybe some of you can relate and find peace in the last line. How do I say goodbye The kisses and hugs and the glint in your eye How do I say goodbye Our love brought laughter and tears So much we had missed through the years Such joy did we find in everyday life Now memories each day cut like a knife Death came so swiftly like a thief in the night One minute you were with me, the next gone from my sight The world kept on turning, how could that be Why did I stay, what is left here for me I have more compassion, more time for a friend Yet I wonder each day where will it end I hold on to memories and they make me cry But how can I say goodbye The flowers of spring, a bird on the wing Words to a song that you used to sing I see you in the Autumn leaves, the blue of the sky How can I say goodbye In all that I do and all that I see You are a memory I can't touch you or see your smile Yet every once in a while I feel a gentle touch like a breath on my skin And it seems you are with me again For a split second a scent from the past After so long how does it last ? So much I hold on to and the wind seems to cry I'm with you, I'm with you, no need for goodbye Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
