Goodbye Pains

Goodbye , said the heartless sea shores

when the last wave splashed over the sand.

Goodbye , said the child at the school gate

when she while crying left her mothers' hand.


Goodbye, said the happy saint

while leaving behind all heartfelt desires.

Goodbye, to the dilapidated house

when the pretty new house the couple hires.


Goodbye, the bride mournfully cries

holding tightly her daddys finger.

Goodbye, says the dying old man

as he has no more time to linger.


Goodbye, says the starry night

when the sunlight penetrates the sky.

Goodbye, to the tiny tree nest

for the bird has now learnt to fly.


Goodbye, to you wasnt easy to say,

before surfacing to cheeks tears dried out

Goodbye, lacerated my heart into pieces

but still I was too fatigued to shout.


Goodbye, to you wasnt easy to say

tried to pull you back with all my soul.

But my wound was never seen by you

Goodbye , you smiled in order to console.

Your poem made me realise just how many ways we can experience 'goodbye' in our lives. Beautifully written with a poignant ending.

What a wonderful poem. Sad in the end, but well-written and a pleasure to read.
