  1. An Unwanted Goodbye
    Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2011

    My time with you has meant so much,
    I only wish it didn't have to end.
    I realize not everything stays the same,
    I just don't want any changes to impend.

    But like most things,
    What goes up must come down.
    I feel that together with our love and commitment,
    We can find the common ground.

    So let's stay strong and keep our love alive.
    As I am not ready to give in.
    Avoidance now, but soon a reality,
    One last kiss in our looney bin.

    So our time together has come to an end,
    And we have to accept the terms.
    Let's say our goodbyes and kiss one last time,
    Before our biggest fear is confirmed.

  3. Never Easy
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2021

    Goodbyes are never easy
    In fact, they can make you feel queasy
    But saying goodbye to you makes me feel sad
    I think of the good times we had.

    However, I do know, things happen for a reason
    Our love was great, but only for a season.
    It doesn't mean I will forget you
    When I think of you I'm a bit blue.

    Even though we say goodbye
    Let me just clarify
    I wish you only the best
    May your life be full of zest.

  4. I'd rather say Hello than Goodbye any day!

  5. Hello, Goodbye
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2021

    Hello and goodbye are two words we use a lot
    One is a welcome and the other when we part
    The best is always the hello's
    Some say it quiet, others often bellow.

    But goodbyes are no fun
    Especially with a special one.
    Why is the word "good" include in a bye
    I often wonder this with a sigh.

    They say there is good in everything
    But oftentimes goodbye sadness brings.
    May life bring hellos a lot more
    And let the goodbyes go without keeping score.

  6. My Love For You
    Poet: Kate Summers, © 2019

    My love for you was so strong
    I can't believe we went wrong
    When I think of you and what we had
    It gives me a feeling of being sad.

    I thought I found my life-long love
    I thought you were sent from above
    I even thought a soulmate you were
    I thought our love was forever and for sure.

    But now your gone and I miss you so
    But I know I have to let you go.
    As hard as that is I wish it was not true
    As without you in my life, I am so blue.
