Goodbye

A tribute

It just doesn’t seem right
Because he did nothing wrong
Now, forever, he is out of sight
But he did nothing wrong

His parents loved their son just like anyone else
But what can they do now
All the plans they had have to be shelved
But what can they do now

Smiling & laughing with friends in the morning
Gone he was in the night
Laughter turned into mourning
Gone he was in the night

Makes you take a different look at life
Loss of someone you know
Devalues stupid rivalries and strifes
Loss of someone you know

Life will have to go on just life before
Goodbye, Rest in peace
But he will be missed, who is nomore
Goodbye, Rest in Peace

Hmmm-serious and poignant,yet not morose.
Very deftly balanced !
Only regret is that it leaves one wanting more !

i've been reading a number of poems but this one has a little something extra to it. It's interesting to note the different styles and emotions people associate with a good bye.

adarshs said...

Vee... said...

Phoenixritu said...

The final goodbye makes every thing that bothers us in life seem petty and pointless. Nice one here

Amity said...

i wish to think this is not real...

but as always, goodbye is sad!

adarshs said...

@vee,ritu...thanks for visiting...d final goodbye actually makes u realise wats worth it n wats not..

@amity....sadly it is

Maddie said...

Nicely written. It is so difficult to say goodbye to someone you know, someone you love. I don't think it ever ends with a goodbye.

Jaspreet said...

A very different kind of a goodbye poem it is.Sad but still enjoyed reading it..in fact I feel that there is a positivity in it inspite of it being a 'goodbye'.

adarshs said...
