Goodbyes are sometimes good…

Yes, I’m one day late…

Today, as befits the final poem of NaPoWriMo, I challenge you to write a poem of farewell. It doesn’t have to be goodbye forever — like I said, NaPoWriMo will be back again next year. If you need a little inspiration, you might find some in perusing this selection of goodbye-and-good-luck poems from the Poetry Foundation website.

Saying goodbye is such an art.
It leaves
an empty hollow
thick silence
a heavy absence
It leaves
the moment you tap
to dial a number
and realise he’s gone
It leaves
the quiet wait for your commute
the empty train seat next to you
louder rumbles on the tracks
It leaves eternally missed moments.
But goodbyes can sometimes
To breathe
For new surprises
New ways to walk
And dream
And see the mundane
They can
teach us to gracefully
let go.


Send me sunshine, light and love! :) Constructive criticism is also welcome.
