Saying Goodbye

Treasured moments
Passing time
Eating together
Family time
Holding each other close
In heart, body and soul
Singing songs
Welcoming others into the fold
Having tiffs
Talking things out
Trying new things
Taking new routes
Sharing values
Sharing dreams
Being there
Believing in me
Hard to believe
Our time is coming to an end
No time to fester, worry or fret
It's time to acknowledge the going around the bend
Saying goodbye-
Almost unwillingly
Things happen
No time to tarry
You are special to me
Even though we must part
Your spirit remains--
You are in my heart

I dedicate this to my sister, Alanna who is diagnosed with cancer and is in the process of saying goodbye to folks. We are not quite sure how long we have with her, but we intend to enjoy every moment we can.
