A Whispered Goodbye

The time has come, under the sky so vast,

To whisper words, our goodbye at last,

A chapter closes, pages sadly turn,

Leaving memories, hearts forever yearn.

In silence we part, no grand fanfare,

Just a tender look, a lingering stare,

Goodbyes are tough, even whispered low,

Yet in our hearts, love continues to grow.

So take this whisper, keep it close and near,

It holds our joy, laughter, every tear,

For though we part with a gentle sigh,

Our whispered goodbye, will never die.

Farewell My Friend

We laughed together, shared dreams so bright,

Now I must walk alone, into the night,

Our paths diverge, your journey you choose,

I'll cherish the moments, I'll never lose.

Goodbye, my friend, a word so bittersweet,

Memories knit us close, even in defeat,

In our hearts a special place you stay,

Guiding lights upon an unknown way.

So take this farewell, a gentle touch,

Grasping the time, that meant so much,

For in every sunset, your light remains,

Friendship everlasting, the heart contains.

The Last Embrace

In the glow of dusk, our hands entwine,

A final embrace, sweet and divine,

Words fail to rise, as eyes start to glisten,

A bond so deep, we simply listen.

The parting nears, a sorrowful tide,

Once brimming with joy, now we must hide,

Goodbyes lay heavy, in the air we breathe,

Yet love's true weight, beneath we bequeath.

With one last look, under the moon's grace,

We let go slowly, of our last embrace,

For in this goodbye, love finds no end,

It circles back, on time will depend.

Until We Meet Again

Goodbye for now, it's not forever,

A pause in time, a fleeting sever,

Though miles come between, our spirits stay,

Close in heart, every single day.

Our laughter's echo will linger on,

Until the dawn of the distant morn,

Where once more together we shall stand,

In the warmth of a greeting, hand in hand.

So dry those tears and raise your chin,

Our journey's pause, shall soon begin,

To bridge the gap with memories bright,

Until we meet again, in the light.

A Silent Farewell

No need for words, or tearful eyes,

This silent farewell holds no goodbyes,

It's not an end, but a soft transition,

Of life's perpetual, sweet remission.

We'll speak through the rustling autumn leaves,

In whispered winds, and rain that grieves,

Each morning's dew, the sun's gentle kiss,

In every moment, we'll find our bliss.

So let us part, with a quiet smile,

Treasuring each other, all the while,

For when words fade, in the hush of the dell,

Our silent farewell, speaks more than we'll tell.

Sailing Away

The sails billow, as you glide to the sea,

Beyond the horizon, where you long to be,

We wave from the shore, our spirits alight,

Wishing you journeys of joy and delight.

Each wave a goodbye, a dance of the sea,

A rhythm of waters, parting you and me,

But the ocean vast, connects distant shores,

In its depths, our friendship endures.

Embark on your voyage, with courage, sail high,

Discover new sunsets, under foreign sky,

Goodbyes are just pauses, till we recount,

Adventures afresh, in an endless amount.

The Dusk of Our Days

The sun dips low in the farewell sky,

Mirroring the sadness, in tearful eye,

Our shared days dusk, a softening glow,

Recalling laughter, the love we know.

Parting is sorrow's shadowed hue,

A canvas painted, with memories we drew,

Yet dusk must fall, for the night is near,

Bringing dreams of dawn, void of fear.

So with the dusk, let us bid adieu,

To days of old, to moments true,

For in the twilight's last embrace,

Lies the hope of a new day's grace.

Gone Like the Petals

Petals on the wind, they fly so free,

A gentle goodbye, from the flowering tree,

Carried away, they leave their start,

Roots remain firm, in the heart.

Each petal a memory, floating in time,

Parting with sweetness, of a love sublime,

Their fragrance lingers, though they roam,

Guiding the heart gently home.

We too shall part, like petals to the air,

With the beauty of moments, we once did share,

Goodbyes are tender, yet nature's way,

Until we bloom together, another day.

Evening Song

The evening sings its closing tune,

A lullaby to the rising moon,

Our harmony joins the twilight song,

Goodbye is brief, but love is long.

Notes may pause as the night unfurls,

A serenade to the stars and pearls,

Our goodbye not an end, but a rest,

In the symphony of life's quest.

Meet me again, in dawn's chorus bright,

When sun's first rays take their flight,

For now, let’s part in the evening's calm,

In the soothing embrace of night’s sweet balm.

Ebb of Time

Time takes us on its flowing tide,

Through rapids fast, in currents wide,

We drift apart, not by our will,

But by life’s stream, that never stands still.

This goodbye we share, is just time's way,

Of reshaping our now, to a new today,

Our moments are treasures, locked in the heart,

Defying the distance that pulls us apart.

So till the ebb flows back to shore,

I'll keep our tales, and so much more,

For goodbyes are merely time's disguise,

Love is the tide, that never dies.
