This is another gem and rings true. Sometimes we don't get the chance to say goodbye and that's just a part of life. A sad part. There won't be any "goodbyes" in heaven you know! Love and prayers for you, Gina

Wow such a moving read. It doesn't make sense to be strong because it stings...touched by true emotions. Stubborn to reach out...ah so very true. A very brilliant and inspiring read. I' ve lived these moments...sorry to the wall. You deliver cleverly and the emotions pour down the page. Gripping!

I have lived in these moments where I never said goodbye or I just walked out without telling the person that I won't return ...I guess , we are strangers at times . Your words are very loud and clear even though your name is' silent one '..and I am glad that you're here ..hugs ~red

So that it doesn't happen, it's good to always view the people around you with the awareness of how fragile their existences are.

Silent One: This is another of your works that will affect any that enter in. I just can't seem to add that depth to what I do. I'm so pleased to read those that can. Thanks for sharing with all of us on the soup. oldbuck

Great Write Silent.I guess in some way I feel like I never said goodbye to my dad...I was only 3 when he was killed in a car accident, so I don't really remember it, or him. It's all good though, I know I will see him again :) Have good week :)

This poem is so emotional and really tugs my heart-strings. I never got to say good=bye to someone too. But, I know their spirit lives and knows how much I loved him and I'm sure it's true for you too. Hugsss.........

So true and real. Heartfelt when reading, thinking of my own personal experiences with this subject. Wonderfully written Silent One.

Why does separation come? So hard do bear. Even if you say Good Bye, grief is no less. Best Wishes to you always

Yes, we wonder why people leave our lives. I have lost touch with people I didn't want to lose touch with. Tears may be the result of such losses - as you point out in this work. Best Matthew Anish

Much truth to your poem, Silent One. Is it based on personal experience? As for my poem, what bars do men (or women) go to for meditative purposes? I know of none. What I like about humorous verse is that it doesn't have to be true to life to get a laugh. Best to you. / M

It is not a personal poem.. I believe there are bars in Amsterdam, or cafes, should I say that people go to for such things..
