Poem - The Time Has Come

Once again friends are separated by beginnings or endings, or both. The poem “The Time Has Come” is about this sad phenomenon.


The Time Has Come

The time has come to say goodbye
bid farewell to status quo
the sadness rests upon my heart
as I ponder how this came about

the passing years ask their due
though I resist, it will be done
by writ of work in our town
or school leading them far away

in my world I stand in place
this is illusion I'll admit
I'm left with remnants to console
my friends may have to start again

the present state has passed away
as fae seasons turn once more
the adieus have replaced
happy greetings of yesterday

the curtain falls upon the stage
in time to announce the next act
familiar faces will be replaced
by new friends not yet met

they’re sufficient for a time
and then again the pain repeats
the split delayed before it strikes
that time arrives with encore

we’ll grow old separately
cold visits echoing ghostly pasts
not the same in brief measure
with sadness filling in between.
