Good-bye
By Leslee Rogers
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2005 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

There are two dreaded words
When there is nothing else to say,
Nothing else to do,
Nothing else to dream,
Nothing else to think,
Nothing.
There are two words
That make you feel empty,
W you say but don't want to,
Words that make everything
feel like the end of the world,
the end of everything.
There are two painful words
You must say when it's time,
The unstoppable words,
Good-bye.
