Good Bye

Miles to say goodbye

Life moves on, as ever
The faces of people changes
Whom I meet, talk, befriend
Hundreds came and went
Leaving good memories forever
Without a trace to see again
But its part of life
A few remains for long
Sharing good and bad times
But there are times;
When there is no life left,
In the beautiful friendship
Even though how good it has been!
Words and deeds can turn it,
into nothing more than trash.
Even though heart doesn’t want,
To end the relation.
Issues are too hot handle
Efforts to revive it go in vain.
Hopes of getting back the warmth,
Fades just like a evening sun.
There comes the thought of
Saying good-bye.
But a good bye can’t take away
The feelings inside the heart!
It will remain there forever.
So may be an unrelenting wait,
Or an unfettering effort to forget,
Whichever may be the path 
walk through it slowly 
As, even if a full-stop is drawn
It doesn't mark the end of memories 
So there are miles to go
To say a good-bye !

I wrote this poem some years back. It's not a goodbye.It's rather  miles away from saying goodbye.

Loved the idea esp 'But a good bye can’t take away The feelings inside the heart!It will remain there forever.' No matter how much we try to convince ourselves that it is over.it isn't over until it actually is.All the best!:)

Nithin R S said...

Yeah, the more you try to convince your heart, it becomes even difficult to get over it. So its always better to leave it on its own,as with time, it will move to the stacks of memories. Thanks for reading. All the best :)
