Good-Bye

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” – Henry David Thoreau

GOOD-BYE
 
I would like to say Good-Bye
 
to the forest of darkness;
but without darkness
I would never feel the warmth of light.
 
I would like to say Good-Bye
to a broken heart;
but without healing it
I would never know
what feeling whole is like.
 
I would like to say Good-Bye
to all enemies;
but without them
I would never know true friends.
 
I would like to say Good-Bye
to feeling lost and all alone;
but without loneliness
I would never know
the joy of being found.
 
So, I won’t say Good-Bye
to all that hurts in life
for I need to feel pain
to heal and grow.
I need to feel lost
to seek stars, see their glow.
 
I won’t say Good-Bye.
Not just yet.
There are too many trails to travel
too many eyes to see
too many stories to learn
too many rivers to swim.
 
I won’t say Good-Bye
instead, I will say Hello
to all the strangers
of one’s Soul.
