Death Moving On Poem

Poem About Never Getting The Chance To Say Goodbye

I wrote this poem after a friend of mine attempted suicide. Thankfully, she lived, but I was still haunted by the "what if?" What if she had died? What if I never got to say goodbye? I know there are millions of people left without goodbyes, and I wanted to write a poem that could (hopefully) capture the "last goodbye" to a person who is already deceased (the "last goodbye" being a way to let go and try to move on).

So now I'll tell you
And hope you'll hear.

And Goodbye.
See you on the other side.
