Good Byes

by Jeanne Fiedler
(New Jersey)

Oh!How I hate good byes
It seems I've had too many
over the span of years
I call my lifetime...
Loves gone - come and gone
Hellos and Good Byes
Wishes and Dreams
never fulfilled
years sabatoged
buried in the earth
Why couldn't it have been?
What if, what if?
How I stand alone today...
seeing that more good byes
are coming in the near future
Tragedies, traumas
unforgiven sins throughout
all the long years
generations gone
Life is so hard
tears stain my face
I long for some good times
coming to save me,
moment by moment - one day
at a time...
from all the despair
and anguish of the long
experience of living...

Soft white petals falling
into my cupped hands...

Such Sorrow
by: Anonymous

Beautifully written! Your pain and loss touched my heart. I made a list of those I have lost along the way. I lost my dad last November and am still wrestling with my grief. I suppose it is these painful experiences that are what makes us stronger or wiser, or something. I hope you still find joy in simple things. That is how I have coped, looking at small pleasures, one day at a time.
