It’s a Life of Farewells

by Catchy   Oct 10, 2018

How does one bid farewell
after a long joyous companionship?
What a skill learned by men
since the beginning of time
To leave with a glee
in a bag they willingly zip
In this world of attachment
it’s a crime

Change, as we know, is the only
constant thing in this world
For men to survive, evolve
and strive to be great
To the unknown foggy lands
we cheerfully board
Along with new hopeful stories
we’re ecstatic to create

The old pictures are kept
in the palm of our hands
Looking back during nights
of nostalgia is an ease
The day we bid farewell
to the old unforgettable lands
Knowing that true friends
and memories cannot cease

    It's often difficult to know when is the right time to move on and sever ties. In some cases if your lucky the answer is never but sometimes you just have to cut ties and burn the memories in order to move on and make new ones. A thought provoking piece. Glad to see it nominated. Best wishes Milly x

    Personally, I like not to retrace my steps too much (the past is the past) but sometimes, nostalgia gets the better of all of us.

    Great piece

    Simply love this.

    The last stanza particularly caught me. It kinda made me think how much I miss my old buddies.

    I guess I'll be making some calls as a result.

    Thank you
