Fare Ye Well

Fare Ye Well my good friends
in life, partings come and go
there are horizons beckoning
some new, some old friends

We walk together now and then
till our ways part for a while
we each have things to do
that lie in different directions

Life so full of these parting ways
children, leaving, spreading their wings
setting out on torturous roads
leading them to who knows where

Fare Ye Well my good friends
from here I must travel on alone
searching, seeking always looking
for the meaning of life itself

    Beautiful w/a touch of sadness. Mainly because nobody REALLY wants to hear "good-bye". But, we know it's inevitable in some way. Wonderfully done!

    This really resonates with me, especially since so many of my relatives and friends seem to be moving very far away from me. I feel as though they take a part of me with them, when they leave... while I'm just staying here. Good poem!

    Lovely poem. Parting is always sad, but looking forward to the reunion makes it easier.
