Saying Goodbye

No one likes to say goodbye
When loved ones part with mournful sigh
And dare to beg the question,
It turns a beating heart to stone.

A tear or two to soothe the soul,
But still the story goes untold.
The ending lurking in the cold
Unyielding darkness, all alone.

Never seems to go away,
Recurring with each break of day.
A bitter price for hearts to pay,
A chill that settles to the bone.

Should be,
         Must be,
                  Will be more.
Someday upon another shore,
Another chance,
         Another door,
Another world where hope is grown in
Gardens lush and free from pain,
We will meet to love again.
