Goodbye for good
Sooner or later we all part
I always run out
Nothing can ever stay the same
Whatever we had is done
Blessed be the days for holding
Time, joy, love, and good fun

If I thought it mattered
I’d shed the tears of parting
Make a show of sorrow true
My one regret
I can’t feel the pain
That wound scarred over

Goodbye for good
They only get easier
Easy goodbyes
Life rolls along forever
The past ceasing to exist

Goodbye and thank you
for easy goodbyes

    “that wound scarred over” is the theme line of this poem.. love it.
    It’s sad in that the person doesn’t feel, that it’s easy now.
