The Sy of Goodbye
By Larry Chadwick
I'll always adore you
My heart resists the Sy of goodbye,
Wishing the need were not real.
Knowing it would come some day,
Denying how that day would feel.
But now the time is here,
And my heart longs to Sy.
Accepting the truth of loss,
My mind forcing me to try.
Then words and images arise,
Isabelís love and rhyme well written,
And the things that Sy would try,
For the girl by whom he was smitten.
As I pause to reassess it is then
I detect a smile in my tears.
Faithful was the gentle man,
Who loved his wife all these years.
And so I accept the Sy of goodbye,
It came so easy just using the Sy of try.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
