You never said goodbye

by ianblackpoet

No sunset song or sonnet

Nor parting kiss goodbye

No midnight mist or moonlight

Nor longing, tender sigh

No glancing back and wishing

Nor ember-flame of faith

No remnant of the fire

Nor sorrow-soaked embrace

No starlit solemn parting

Nor walk beside the waves

No tears of sweet nostalgia

For loving hearts, no graves

You couldn’t stand to soothe me

Or hold me as I cry

And what hurt me most of all

You never said goodbye
