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…

    Beautiful poem, Mr. Whalen! All this is so true, sometimes, it's hard to believe that the ones you love so much could hurt you as much, as well. Kudos. (Report) Reply
