Poem: Final Farewell

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Final farewell is about him listening for the calm before the storm. He knows she is dying and wishes to know the exact moment. He doesn't want to miss kissing her one last time before she leaves.

"Final Farewell"

One ear waits to hear
heartbreaking news,
the other listens
for the calmness before the storm.

His heart bleeds inside
knowing the moment is close,
hoping to notice the exact second,
so he can touch her hand,
kissing her lips one last time.

There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.

— Mahatma Gandhi
