Goodbyes – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 11/20/2020

Do you ever know it’s the last goodbye?
What would you do if you did know?

Here is my contribution:

The final time I drove away
from my childhood best friend,
we had no way of knowing
his life would soon end.

My step dad was different,
his illness came slow,
at our last tearful parting,
it was his time to go.

There’s nobody I know
with an immortal curse
so I tell them I love them
both last and first.

I live daily goodbyes,
one day all will be the last,
my only existence
in thoughts of the past.

Parting reminds us
all moments are precious
and our hearts can’t overfill
so that nothing has left us.

Goodbye hug
