Saying Goodbye

A Poem by emipoemi

To say goodbye brings sorrow’s boat ashore-

Our tears well up and rain upon the floor-

From wanting much to be where just before,

Or to again have what we have no more.

Whene’er at leisure we’re most wont to roam

About the world, exploring high and low,

But seldom have desire to go back home,

(Much less to leave when we from home must go).

Most things the value of spilt milk may bear,

Implying ’tis inane to sink in grief

Should they be lost or fall in disrepair,

But still we weep and wail in disbelief.

Yet all we have and all we come to see

Shall ever be preserved in memory.

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.
This is REALLY very good--it is one of those rare poems (or any sort of writing) that bores down deep to that rare nugget of truth buried deep with our inexplicable sentience-- the last couplet nears perfection.

thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.
You certainly have a clean and well-presented sense of rhyme and flow... Impressive, actually, your meter and message... Spilt milk may bear in disrepair, suspend disbelief, no grief... I am a fan...

Such true words.. we can embrace those memories and the pain of saying goodbye could reduce!
The sadness and grief, I could feel in the poem!
Well done Emi!
