Often people struggle with saying 'Goodbye' and this Elle Smith original poem explains why this word can be so hard to say:




I didn’t get to say goodbye,

but maybe that was best.

The words were never uttered,

so it’s kind of difficult to forget.


I don’t know if it’s better,

no closure to receive.

It leaves the door still open,

that person’s return to perceive.


Those memories can stay forever,

floating gently in the air.

The moments seemingly captured,

in the mind, the soul and prayer.
