A Last Goodbye
By JLHunter

The time that rages quiet by
Engages one whose soul yearns,
And even seconds quickly fly.

When said man silhouettes the sky,
His tortured shadow writhes and churns
As angels' voices weep and sigh.

Whilst he must watch as daylight burns,
And long lost dreams of love now die,
He spoons them into battered urns.

Then hourglasses taking turns
Recount the raging hours that ply
The highway, as old age it spurns.

And finally his heart knows why...
Eventually his sad soul learns
That each regret his pain now earns
Is smothered with his mournful cry,

...And ended with a last goodbye.

It's a good poem Hunter, but who'd wanna live like that? So full of sorrow, melancholia and wretchedness.  

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...please!

Excellent poem, loved every word.

In any one's life that last goodbye must be quite dreadful to face, yet its a part of life!

Great play on words within the body of this very good poem, JL.
