Goodbye

This brief poem by Catherine Turner is a moving way to say goodbye to a parent, grandparent, sibling, child or friend. Extracts from it might also be a good choice for a non-religious inscription on a headstone.

Goodbye

I never knew a single word could alter all it touched
I never knew a word could make me cry
I never knew our last sad word would break my heart so much
I never knew.... before we said goodbye.
