Goodbye- K.J. Koukas (August 2012)

Background to the poem:

In July 2012 I graduated with a BA in Classical Studies. It was a great day and a sad day. Goodbyes had to be said between good friends with the possibility of not seeing them again for a very long time.  Those three years during my BA were the best. I met the best of people and made friends for life. There was laughter and there was sadness. It was a great journey and a great adventure. But that didn’t mean that it had to be the end on our graduation day. Just the beginning of a new adventure with the promise of not to lose each other.

After graduating and after saying my goodbyes I went home and wrote this poem. Didn’t think much of it at the time but I thought I should put it up now and share it with the world… before I changed my mind! Hope you like it.

 

Goodbye- K.J. Koukas (August 2012)

It’s time to say goodbye
But we will not cry
we are going away
each their separate way.

We might not  see each other again
but even if this is true
we will never forget one another.
You’re in my heart
and I’m sure I am in yours.
We’ll kiss each other goodbye
and say farewell
hoping to meet soon.

We will stand strong
and hold our heads high.
Goodbye my dear friend
I’ll miss you.
