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 don’t know

What you had until it’s time to go

It’s one of those things, I don’t know why

You finally discover what you had,

When it’s time to say goodbye

***

Life is sad

Life is Cruel,

It’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,

Life’s too short to remain so sad.

***

Sing a hymn,

say a prayer

be grateful you’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.

Well I’m Off Now

It will be a trial for me to leave WordPress and my blogging pals for just over a week.

I looked up the weather where I am going, in Bergen, Norway and it is a chilly Ten Degrees Centigrade! which is quite a bit colder than where I am in the UK right now, but I am still looking forward to the fresh air and wonderful scenery.

Aufwedersehn, Au Revoir and as they apparently say in Norway “ha det bra, ser deg snart”

Goodbye and See you Soon.

🙂
