Farewell


Farewell is a word,
So simple, so pure
Saying what started

Farewell is a memory
that stays for too long
Farewell is everything
that's been left unsaid
Farewell is the greeting
of someone
who's dead.

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
