Is good-bye really good-bye?

Good bye?

Good byes are transitory

a wave, a smile, a warm kiss

leaving only starts the timer

till reunion once again

Be not sad, but glad, time spent

kiss the flower there before

smell the sweetness, savor one

some memories... never fade

This sojourn, this speckled road

calls out, all departing times

horizons wait, the road's clock

good byes are...transitory

    Some good-byes are the longest ever known, And now I think

    on ------------are all Byes "good"

    I am now tempted to post a poem wrote in 1997, maybe I

    will-------- This is an interesting study on the word and takes my mind to many places, ever in wonder who said the first

    good- bye, and the cousin words to good-bye, farewell, adieu,

    etc. Horizions do await, Kudos! on a deep subject with just a word!

    Yes, good byes are transitory. In addition, a good bye is a hello to something new.

    Many good-byes are merely "au revoirs." Let us hope that at least some are "transitory."

    No. Good Bye need not always be Good Bye. It can also be Bad Buy sometimes..... :-8
