Without goodbye

Goodbye
If someone left without saying goodbye –
Would you be sad, would you cry?

Would you hope for them to call
or know in your heart
they are never going too far;
would you wish for reunion some day
or treat the silence
like a pause in the game;
would you question their return
or rather spend time
gathering the gossip till they come;
would you worry about being forgotten
or accept the absence,
the dejection and the confusion;
If someone left without saying goodbye –
Would you be sad, would you cry?
Or simply whisper to yourself,
this story ended too soon,
there must be some chapter
you got to re write.
The first two lines of this poem are from another poem from the book I am currently reading : When our worlds collide. It is a beautiful story of a young girl trying to understand love and friendship. I like the author for the fact that she is a good poet and so there are poems always an integral part of the story.
I am linking this to dVerse prompt for the week.

  1. I would be crying my eyes out and I will definitely give it one more shot give them a call..
    I know in today’s world this might be considered as what a idiot or stupid person I am.. but then I don’t understand why should two people who care for each other leave without saying a good bye tooo..
    A beautiful poem .. Loved it and made me think toooo.. world is changing

    1. Doesn’t mean we shoukd change our ways too. i am all for trying as long as you want. No magic happens without the hard work and letting the other person know he/she can walk in the same door they left

  2. I wish I could share this with someone I know. But I cannot. So, I will just wish that they land here someday and read this.
