Goodbyes

Goodbyes

we fail to say what we truly want
we say things we never really meant
and in between
there is a lost love
there is a lost chance
there is a broken heart
there is a forgotten promise.

we give up and leave
when we are needed the most
we hold on even when we need to let go
and in between
there is a lost love
there is a lost chance
there is a broken heart
there is a forgotten promise.

goodbye we need to say
as we grow older and needed to leave
and in between goodbyes
there is regret
there is heartache
there is sorrow
there is remorse.

failing to say what we truly want
leaving even when we are needed
bidding goodbye even if we are hurting
these we all need to do
even with the ones we truly love
even with the ones we care.

  2. Aw. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Sad, but true. When needed, saying ‘good-bye’ can the bestest, most honest thing we can say/do.
    Your poem reminds me of a quote…
    โ€œIf youโ€™re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.โ€ – Paulo Coehlo

    There is such pain in every line of this poem! There is a cleansing when we say good-bye and leave a toxic relationship but the pain of leaving a loving embrace leaves us dirty with regret and muddied with sorrow.
