Tears of Goodbye

Leaving a song in your place

I see your eyes in every face

I had peace once

When we had a heart

When we were once a family

Broken by life

Like pieces of a thrown dinner plate 

Left to picking

I’m missing pieces

Leaving a song in your place

Only this one can’t be sung

For your eyes in every face

Are now tears of goodbye

  1. Beautiful, sad poetry,Sheldon. I know, I haven’t been around for a long time…sorry about that. I tend to keep up with you through your comments on others blogs. Which means I’m not really keeping up with you…my apologies. I must say that of the posts I’ve seen so far (going from current backwards) I see a lovely deepening of meaning and expression in your poems. It’s very beautiful, even when it’s sad. This is really blew me away. It brought forth a lot of images and feelings while reading it, and touched me so. That is good poetry!
    Hope you’re doing well, Sheldon. I know life has it’s ups and downs, just hoping you’re having more ups than downs recently. Take care of you! Love, peace and blessings, Sara
