As I Bid You Goodbye

You ask to stay and help me live
Again even if the memory of your
Presence haunts me over and over
Again, you want to stay and help me
Rise out of the depths ocean
Of our love that seems too much
Seems unkind for me to rise
As the memory of our love now
Haunts me over and over again
You want to stay as you say you love
Me again and again even if the memory
Of our love felt short, felt unkind,
Fill with joy and pain, you want to
Help me rise out of the blues
That seems too much, seems unkind
For me to rise and I look at you,
Kiss you,pause, smile, with tears
In my eyes, as I bid you farewell,
As I bid you goodbye.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
