Goodbye

Goodbye:

It’s more than just an expression of salutation;

It’s a feeling, an emotion,

That rips through your chest

and burns out your eyes

with tears for that which

you leave behind.

Goodbye is the panic that

floods you as you realise

Nothing is certain.

Everything is about to

change. Maybe for the better,

Maybe for worse,

But you know no different.

Goodbye is that heartache

that keeps you awake

Long into the night; his

words ring out;

Two simple words that make

no sense together.

A sick juxtaposition.

How can a bye be good?

How can leaving you behind

be right?

How can I live knowing

of all the things that I will miss?

Goodbye is more than just

an expression of salutation.

It is the send off of a loved friend;

It is the heartbreak of lovers;

It is the song of a fool.
