Goodbyes

You said you loved me then you said goodbye
As one more magic moment reached its end.
Alone and saddened, left to wonder why
This heart so broken tends to slowly mend.
Goodbyes are only anchors of despair
For one who finds his freedom in your smiles.
Your absence leaves me destitute and bare
And starving for a sample of your wiles.
Eternities as empty seconds spent
As time becomes a mystic mystery,
Restored when loneliness at last relents
And brings with you the end to misery.

Such overwhelming magnitude of loss
To never know when next our paths may cross.

David2 - Wonderful imagery in this poem!
I especially like these lines:

"Eternities as empty seconds spent
As time becomes a mystic mystery,
Restored when loneliness at last relents
And brings with you the end to misery."

Excellent writing!

David~
Missing you and the beauty of your penning~
THANK GOODNESS for the archives where we can find poets from the past who are no longer here~

Hoping that life has been good to you and that perhaps someday you will return to leave us another beauty~

Happy holidays my friend~
