How do you say goodbye?

Written to, and for, a very good friend. I love you.

How do you say goodbye?
Do you think about the after?
Do you talk about the past?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you think about what you still need to do?
Do you talk to people who you haven’t talked to in years?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you think of your loved ones?
Do you talk to those closest to you?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you try to do as much as possible?
Do you talk about the things you wish you’d done?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you think of the fun things?
Do you talk about all the things you’ve done?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you think of all you’ve been through?
Do you talk about your struggles?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you laugh at the memories?
Do you cry at the undone?

How do you say goodbye?
Do you promise to always be there?
Do you promise to always remember?

How do you say goodbye?
I really wish someone would tell me.

      1. I can never predict what you are going through right now. But I wish to. That’s true… When you start to think, you naturally tend to think of all the scratches in your life.
        But there’s another way.. that I can advice you (I ain’t that good in giving advices but this one… This has helped me a lot!)
        Never THINK about anything.. just SPEAK TO YOURSELF. People say that speaking to oneself indicates “being mad”.. but I don’t agree
        Listen to your inner voice. Ask the person inside you, who constantly reminds you of your tragic life, to shut up. You’ve got better things to handle.
        Remember Ma’am, what we once lost is lost forever.. but if we come back to our senses at the right time, we will not lose any other person.
        Just Live! Breathe! 😃🤩
        We can control the muscles around our mouth… Let’s keep a smile ready at anytime!
        Your blog is just amazing!
        It keeps me engaged! 🤩🤩

  1. Remember a time when you and she/he had a wonderful moment together.
    Recall a time that you loved and she/he didn’t know exactly how much you loved that time.
    Remind them of something funny or even outrageous that happened when you were together one time. Something which made you, and now makes your heart, laugh
    Recall a moment of embarrassment – maybe you laughed so much milk came down your nose. Or that you were SO desperate for the loo that you almost …. eeek!

    But most of all … tell her/him how much you have enjoyed your relationship and that the memories will live on forever in your heart.
    And then …. tell them you love them. And … how you love them. Why you love them. And how that love will never diminish.

    I’m so saddened to hear of this special relationship reaching the point of it’s human existence. Your soul won’t ever forget. The pain will take a while to ease, but your soul will carry the memories forever.

    Sending you very much love ~ Cobs. x
