Eventually, we bid goodbye,
To friends, family, loved ones,
Treasured possessions, jobs, colleagues,
Books, pets, memories,
We bid goodbye!
The parting at times, is pleasant!
Most often it is extremely bitter!
Eventually it all boils down,
To one pertinent question.
Did you make a positive difference,
In anybody’s life, with your words and deeds?
Did you just take,
Without sharing and giving?
One day or the other,
Everyone leaves us!
Someday we will also leave,
Everyone else, leaving memories,
Of times well-spent and of angry spats.
Eventually we all bid goodbye to each other!
