Saying Goodbye

My heart skips a beat when we are together A pair that belongs, a love that believes We are a perfect match for one another Feelings of joy intertwines, interweaves But when the day closes and the night begins Heartache of departing does run inside The two of us hates to leave, feelings within Sure we’ll be alone awhile, we can’t hide Later in our life after we’ve been married Our lives start to slow down and we get old Another leaving we dread if it’s harried Our final days, our hearts as one we hold Though our love is true, this you sure can’t deny At one point in our life, we must say goodbye
Russell Sivey 11 & 10 alternating syllable count Entrant into harry horsman's "GOODBYE" contest 11/19/2012

    Look at you branching out into sonnet and winning, you don't need to write short verse..your skill is in the longer writes. Fav line [ Though our love is true, this you sure can’t deny At one point in our life, we must say goodbye]..line 7 [hate] no [s]Crongrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Hi Russell, thanks for commenting on my poetry. I really appreciate it. I love your Goodbye sonnet. It is so heartfelt and so true, we are constantly saying goodbye to those we love be it a lover, family, friend or pet. I know all about goodbyes. Well done and best of luck in the contest. Love Constance

    the heart warms and then, we are parting again, love a little tinged by sorrow, thinking by me, we come back to see, if old lovers might return, yes tomorrow ....good Russell mate!
