Awful Goodbyes

by RustySoul   Jun 23, 2017

You left before your time
Leaving me in mournful sighs,
Teach me how to overcome
These awful goodbyes.

Your absence has left a void
That can't be filled or replaced,
No matter where I look,
I see your smiling face.

I can't bring myself to stop
The tears that flow from my eyes,
I've not grown used to
These awful goodbyes.

Every heart has sorrows
Buried within it deep,
You have given me my share
Now it is mine to keep.

Aeons have passed and yet
The tears have never dried,
Still haven't learned to overcome
These awful goodbyes.

    Of all the poems of yours I read, found this one closest to my heart.

    I lost someone too, it happened in a blink of seconds and didn't even give me a chance to say goodbye.

    I agree with Mel Liz.

    It's easy to say hello sometimes easier to say goodbye!! :/

    As the lines go down, my heart is being more torn and torn. What a sad piece. A lovely write. As the reader, I felt the longing and sadness.
