When You Gotta Say Bye, Bye…


‘Bye, Bye!’
‘See you later!’
‘Till next time!’
So often one may say,
Accompanied by a handshake,
A hug, or even a kiss…

Even with hope of later,
Emotions of parting,
May take over,
Time between now n’ that later,
About ‘next time’,
One can’t be so sure…
But still, time to say ‘Bye’,
Always come…

Bidding ‘Bye’, never easy,
Good when one can hear,
To respond to the ‘Bye’…

When one isn’t there,
Yet you gotta say bye,
You may whisper words, unheard,
Express emotions, unseen, unfelt,
Yeah, t’s still ‘Bye’,
‘Goodbye, Goodbye to you’….

Why ‘Good’-bye, with all the ‘bad’ pain,
That comes forth?
When t’s that final ‘Goodbye’,
It’s as bad as it can get…

    This is always a difficult subject to write about, but you draw attention to the feelings behind the last Goodbye. In Dutch we say ‘Tot ziens’ (in French ‘Au revoir’), which means ’till we meet again’. The word ‘Goodbye’ does someone think about ‘the Good’, although there is more ‘bad’ then ‘good’ at that moment and time….
    Yes, deep thoughts in this ‘Post A Day’.
    Bye Bye!
