GOODBYES

Endings hang like a sword upon my head
casting a shadow upon a smile-lit face
or easing the frown on a worried brow

beginnings lead to endings, birth to death
nothing stays the same, though I wish it would
the road may be long, but destiny awaits

No sooner had they taken their first steps
babies run then fly away from home
as spring turns to summer, summer to fall

flowers fade, fairy tales end, tears dry
all things pass. Life is a rehearsal
for that last good-bye towards home.

I combined two prompts to write this piece – POETRY JAM’s Goodbye and Magpie Tales’ photo prompt:

PONY TAIL by LAST EXIT
