A Poem/Song Lyric – Before It’s Time to Say Goodbye

I have written this poem in response to the Word of the Day prompt HYMN and also the Ragtag Daily Prompt – Unaware. 

I started out writing a poem, but then I realised that it had a certain rhythm and so it could be a song lyric too. What do you think?

Before It’s Time to Say Goodbye

Sometimes you donโ€™t know

What you had until itโ€™s time to go

Itโ€™s one of those things, I donโ€™t know why

You finally discover what you had,

When itโ€™s time to say goodbye

***

Life is sad

Life is Cruel,

Itโ€™s not good or bad,

Change is renewal.

Embrace the future with a smile

Live the moment, because in a while

Time will fly,

It will be time to say goodbye.

***

When faced with the end

Of a relationship or a friend,

Look back on all the good times you had

 Shed a tear or two, then smile wide,

Lifeโ€™s too short to remain so sad.

***

Sing a hymn,

say a prayer

be grateful youโ€™re not

totally unaware,

Embrace the future with a smile

Live the moment, because in a while

Time will fly,

It will be time to say goodbye.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

    1. No don’t you worry…
      …I wish I had the creativity to write something about goodbyes in such a beautiful way…
      …maybe in time…
      …but right now, it’s a heavy weight on my heart, so I am not feeling at all poetic about it!
