Goodbye - Poem by jerry hughes

Goodbye is so final.
It ends everything, dismissing
all the goodness by tying it up
in a shabby parcel, and posting it
stampless to the dead letter office.
There to sit on a shelf with the other
goodbyes that suffered the same fate

    Another of my favourites. I guess not many people know about the 'dead letter office' anymore. It has gone the way of blotting paper and adding machines. Beautiful poem. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
