Dear Friend Goodbye

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.


This is a poem about how friendships suddenly come to an end. I guess that we all have faced this situation sometime or the other in life.

Down the years, you still keep thinking why and what went wrong.

Dear friend

Am saying goodbye

Don’t know how

Don’t know why

That we are here today

At this sad moment

Parting ways for no reason

I cannot think of even one

Can you?

I cannot

All I remember is, us having fun

Laughing together

Supporting one another

Sharing secrets with each other

That we would never tell anyone

Do you not remember, dear friend

All those happy days

When fun never used to end


All ended

Don’t know how

We are at this very moment

Parting ways

I cannot even think of one reason

That we are here today

Saying Goodbye

Can You?

Goodbye my friend

Goodbye my friend

Is this the end?

Goodbye my friend

Is this the end

End of the world

Where you and I

Were friends

It does not have to be this way

You and I

We can talk

See how far we can go

We may not agree

But that is okay


Is more than just agreeing

In the world of friendship

It is totally okay

To agree to disagree

And still be friends

I hope you see things this way

So that we can forget goodbyes

And be friends again
