The lingering fragrance of sweet smelling memories
And the thought of leaving them behind
Goodbyes and their bitter sweet pain;
Are beyond what words can express


Looking back at the moments lived
With an infused fear
Of to be broken promises
And mandatory distances
Goodbyes and their heart wrenching pain;
Aren’t they hard to express?

The growing up tales of forevers
And fairytales
Magical beginnings
And happily ever afters
Goodbyes were distant and dreamy
Not anymore!

As I attempt
a versification of goodbyes,
for an alphabet-game;
Resolve I do,
goodbyes are welcome
Memories shall stay,
the good and the bad
To be opened as pages,
of a once upon a time.

A toast to new forevers!
