Goodbye rustling leaves in autumn
I whisper as arrives the end of year,
and lifetime of coffee mugs and
crushed hopes spill upon the page.
Goodbye sorrow and load of heart
in my life I have loved and lost,
only to emerge and learn life is about
Goodbye doubt, no longer here
I have embraced the pain that made
me who I am, being sunshine when
the sky is grey.
Goodbye betrayal, I am wise and free
breathing in bloom of magnolia trees,
knowing that sometimes it’s best
to move on and forget,
and some things are better left unsaid.
