Okay Sylvia this is one of my favorite quotes so that warmed my heart to see you write about it. I loved the interpretation you used in the poem. You did a great job with it. I love how you consistantly made the lines short and I believe each one tells a sad story all their own. You started out great with the first stanza and brought so much hope to a sad situation. Goodbye is never easy but through the tears you can see a smile thats bright. I like the connection between goodbye and memorirs.
We can always remember the good times even if we say goodbye so I believe the tears can can be happy orsad. You miss the pperson so much that you cry but do you cry because you are sad or happy for the memorirs your heart holds? The third stanza is good too because it keeps with the rest of the "tone " of the poem. Love can hurt so much but it's better to feel loved and than lose it than never feel it at all.
I loved how each line/stanza you seem to paint a different emotion. I thought that was very clever. Hearts do mend I agree. Sometimes it is better to say goodbye and just move on. Overall you did the quote proud I feel. It is perfect and lovely. Well done!!
It takes the inner strenth to put a past behind. Moving forward sometimes is the hardest thing to do, but i've learnt with time that people will always be who they are and lovers are no exception. I always enjoyed your poems.
