Many goodbyes

So many ways to say goodbye hwyl fawr is what you say
when  your leaving  here in Wales and trying not to cry
Farvel you say in Denmark used extensibly each day
Hating the final words which they themselves imply..

Now the italians say it with  feeling shouting Addio
with  such aplomb, not like the subtle way of the  czech
they say the word  Sobhem . Whilst In turkey gule gule
is goodbye said with kissing cheek and hugging neck

No matter how we say it goodbye's a final thought
whether its just for 5 minutes  or a lifetime walk
the begging eyes of those we leave behind are caught
saying be back soon so we can walk and talk.

Goodbye to love, goodbye to hurt, goodbye
to life, goodbye to strife, goodbye to goodbyes

Au revoir

    Seren, yours is one of the more entertaining of the ones I am reading on the list. One that is really fun to read. Thanks for posting one that is unique and focusing on the words goodbye themselves, and I'm glad you are on the winners list. Congratulations.

    "Vaya con Dios" is one of my favorites Seren, Portuguese, meaning "Go with God" much nicer than just goodbye xx
