I'm writing this poem 15 days before my best friend leaves for Typee. I'm dedicating this poem to her hoping and praying that it will fix the fight that we are in the middle of. I don't want her to leave without saying Goodbye just because of a little argument that in her eyes isn't so little.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

What If She Leaves Without Saying Good-bye?
What are we fighting over?
I simply do not know.
You have me lost in thoughts,
I'm tossing to and fro.

Soon you will be gone,
And you'll blame this all on me.
What can I say or do,
So the mistake we both can see.

Why did you pick this fight,
With me before you go?
I'm all alone and lost,
But of this you do not know.

If you don't say goodbye,
Before you turn and leave.
What am I supposed to do,
Except to cry and grieve?!

I thought our friendship was special,
I thought it meant a lot.
If you felt the same way,
Why are we stuck in this knot?

I don't like good-byes,
But in this we have no choice.
If you won't speak to me,
the good-bye's will come from MY voice.

We've managed through other fights,
But this one's not the same.
I'm not having any fun,
And I won't to stop this game.

I'm not good at soirees,
So I'll do my best with this.
I have one last request,
It is my goodbye wish.

I wish that we were friends again,
Before WE say GOODBYE.
Now that this is off my chest,
I wait and sit and sigh.

  • Laura
    That poem really touched me. I just left my best friend and I was afraid we were going to seperate on bitter terms and I shed countless tears and had restless nights. But I went out on a limb to see her before I left and we restored our beautiful friendship and I dont think we could possibly be any closer. I hope everythig has worked out for you. I wish you all the best in the world. I'd die if I didnt have my best friend.
