Goodbye Friend Poem

I worked with people who helped me grow immensely, not just as a professional, but also as a person. As our time drew to a close and we all prepared to say goodbye, our emotions were running rampant. I created this poem as a parting gift for everyone to remember the good times...to fill the void left by our departure.

Farewell Words

©

Published: October 2017

Farewell words too often part
And cleave with sorrow to aching hearts.
With a final wave, all disappears
Beneath the hush of silent tears

Why can't sorrow be so kind
As to hide away and stay confined?
And leave us only thoughts of bliss,
Of joyful things to reminisce.

So focus not on sorrows, born
Where happy times are now forlorn,
But instead on joy and merriment
And delight all felt without relent.

And with all the love to fill our hearts,
Sorrow and pain then soon departs.
And although goodbyes are bittersweet.
We can no longer feel incomplete.
