The First Hello ... The Last Goodbye
~*Marge Tindal*~

The first hello
the last goodbye
Breathed on the feather
of a sigh

~

A sigh of remembering
how sweet it's been
How short the time
from start
to end

~

The first hello
I'll remember
The last goodbye
I could never forget

~

The time in between
the sweetest yet




*Inspired to post this one for
Tennessee Angel*

Marge~

Very sweet my friend.  Reminds us to make the most of whatever time we get inbetween that hello and good-bye.  Wonderful thoughts!!

Marge~
excellent as your work always is.
this one held a very valuable meaning
in it that i take to heart. cherish each
day you have...for you never know when
good-bye is around the corner. and it is
unfortunate, but good-bye is always
inevitable in life. great message you have
written here. take care.

"Fate exists but it can only take you so far,
Because once you're there
It's up to you to make it happen."

Wow!!!!  It's not fair to pen a poem superior to the one which inspired it.  
Putting my injured pride aside, I absolutely loved this!  It's truly an honor to have my name in any way related to it.  "Good-bye" is one of the saddest words there is.

Hon, I thank you.  And yes, you are right.

Narima~
Oh, hon ... goodbye can be painful -
but the time inbetween is worth remembering.
