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.
