The Sound of Being Told Goodbye

Goodbye leaves an emptiness inside
it feels like an ache so hard to describe
only by experiencing it can one know
the lostness and loneliness to ascribe

Thinking of the words goodbye itself
is there anything about it that's good?
bye has a finality about it so real
it means an end to what has stood

In all our life's we've spoken these words
so very often and without a thought
not realising the effect it can  have
on many persons the misery it's brought

There's a sound that fills the air
much of it so polluted leaving a mark
like a sharp knife with a real cutting edge
cuts the material off instantly all so dark

But one day there's a final goodbye
to life here as we all; know it
then the creator will ask the ultimate
did you believe truly? if not you can't sit!
