A Goodbye…

it has been so long,
that I last wrote a song,
and shared with you;
with your friendship,
my words have grown.

alas that silence spoke,
and you felt so alone;
you said a parting word,
I wish you well, friend.

how to thank the light
for showing the way,
for renewing my hope
in darkness of night?

cannot tell much more,
but I know I must do:

time to say goodbye,
like the twilight does
in a titian dusk sky;
but I know it’ll return,
and I hope you do too.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Nice to see you sing a song after so long!! Your parting goodbye is a befitting finale, a tribute to CoT and its long run!! We have walked that way many a times and thank you for introducing me first to CoT a long time ago!!
