Each Time You Say Goodbye . . .


It is silent, it is lonely
Each time you say 'Goodbye'
I look for a sign from you
I look for your words
And in my moments of quiet
Most of all I look for you
I'm in a lonely place
Each time you say 'Goodbye'
I wait and I wonder
Because you are not here
Wishing you would think of me
And bless me with your grace
Time passes so slowly
Each time you go away
My hope slowly fades
As I wait for you here
Sometimes I hope, sometimes I wish
Sometimes I just pretend
But I know that I am dreaming
And there will be no happy end
For each time you say 'Goodbye'
There will come a last time
And one day when you say 'Goodbye'
It shall be the end . . .

Thank you Foamy dear for your lovely praise of my poem. It came to me last night and it took some re-writing for the words to flow, there were a few more verses like ...
'Do I ask anything of you
or ask you to care?
No, I just want to hear from you
to know that you are there'

but I decided to leave them out.

xoxoxo ♡

lines are best

it do have some moments

almost summer where you are -- time to fire up the old barbie -- maybe you could invite little dolly7 for a visit...

Thanks dear /t. , I'm pleased that you liked some of the poem.

Yes, it is almost Summer here, we have had rain on and off for a week and today is just humid, I am not looking forward to the high temperatures to come.
Dolly 7 is welcome to visit any time, I have lots of lush green grass for her to graze on and she will be safe from BBQ flames. :-)

This is why I wag my tail on the way out. It's my way of saying I'll be back again some day. Plus, it cools off my butt.

dianne said...

Thank you Pugsley my sweet, that is reassuring to know, so next time you say 'Goodbye' I shall know by that wag of your tail that you shall return. A cool butt is good!

xoxoxo ♡

Bonita y muy intima pero triste. A veces las poesías tristes si son bonitas también curan la tristeza. Saludos.

dianne said...

Gracias querida Leovi, sí mis palabras expresan la tristeza y la decepción.

Saludos. xoxoxo ♡

Sad and hopeless ! but c'est la vie !
one says good bye, but another can say Bonjour, je suis là !!
The rose is soft and beautiful !
Wish you a wonderful weekend dear Dianne !

dianne said...

Merci dear marty , yes that is life, many a 'goodbye' but always the hope of someone new in time.
The rose is beautiful, it is perfection I think, symbolic of a heart waiting to blossom and open to a new love.
I wish you a wonderful weekend too dear Marty.

xoxoxo ♡

You are writing about me.......I feel your pain. Goodbyes are so hard. The heartbreak is endless, the waiting and wondering are agonising.
