When We Say Goodbye, A Poetic Excerpt from my book, Poetic Reflections: A Compilation of Poems (2009)

Each time we say our goodbyes, it is harder and harder in this

uncertain world in which we live.


Each time we say good byes, a little piece of my heart is

broken from missing you, wanting you, and badly

needing you.


Each time we say goodbye, my love for you only multiplies,

equaling a love that is grand, like no other,

a love that gets deeper,

and more emotional.


Each time we say goodbye, I look deep into your eyes,

trying to read into your soul, looking for remnants of love,

acceptance, and reassurance reassurance

that I will hold you in my arms again

and that we will forever  be together

and in love.
