Gruelling Goodbye

A goodbye inexplicable and unattainable

A goodbye unspoken and unexpected

Composed a crater in my bosom

Accompanied with garlands by the grave

I glimpsed a carved name,but on heirloom

Whimpered puffs whispered “I am here” in my ears loom

Come back home as a shadow or a dream

To conclude the incomplete feats

And twinkles of utmost gaiety meets

In entity we loved you fondly

A man with a huge heart missed immensely

The grins and chuckles makes me dawdle

Hobnobs and mingles will be memorable

Burdensome inklings assemble

Griefful goodbye grumble.
