When the time comes for saying good-bye
The joy that was yesterday makes you want to cry
The tears and laughter you leave behind
Remind us how we become yesterday’s child
Goodbyes are not easy sometimes they’re rough
When we look deeply there’s never enough
The joy of another the presence they bring
The memories unrelenting your heart did sing
When it is time to tie up loose ends
So you have completion before the next friends
It may not be pretty it may not be nice
Choices adults make sometimes sacrifice
The thing to remember as you toss and turn
No matter the decision you have much to learn
Do not be despairing of forks in the road
Whatever direction carry the load
Try to choose wisely understand consequences
Whatever you do now has significance
Allow your own process to show you the way
There will be completion perhaps not today
Are there things in your life that need to be completed?
How do you usually say good-bye to people, places, and projects?
What are your guiding lights?
What principles help you make decisions?
How do you take care of yourself during transitions?
