goodbye

I had a vision

Of how our last meeting would go,

We would hug

And I would know

That you lived a good life

And were ready to go,

And you would know

That you were loved,

Especially by me;

But I sit across from you

With you scared to leave,

And me scared for you to go,

And I wish not to stop time,

But to rewind it,

To anticipate your troubles

And cure them

Before they would start;

But unfortunately

That is impossible

Because life is imperfect like that,

Just like goodbyes.

  2. I don’t think anyone other than you could express this saying good-bye better. “And I wish not to stop time, but to rewind it.” Perfect. Thank you for a beautiful poem. I think it’s your best.

      1. How horrible for you, your family and your pet. I’ve had many dogs and had to put one down for cancer. It felt like losing a brother, with all the grieving associated with the loss of a relative. Except the emotional bounce back time was quicker. For me, at least. I’m not telling you how to feel. I just want to sympathize and let you know I empathize as well. 😢
