Unspoken Goodbyes


The ones you love
Can make you laugh
The ones you love
Can make you cry

The ones you love
Can steal away
Ere you have the chance
To say goodbye

Rue not the missed chance
To have bid them farewell
To have given to them your love
Will have served
…Just as well…

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
