Little Goodbyes

Big goodbyes are those
That rip my heart apart
So bold in their attack
That they cannot be ignored
No matter how hard I try.

But life is also full
Of little goodbyes
That are hardly noticed,
like a door gently closing.
So quiet are they
That I find myself wondering
When did that happen
And why was I too busy to notice?



  1. i would hope i never miss a goodbye or have it go unnoticed...but it does happen and you look around and they are gone...thta is a hard realization...

  2. Awww, Jan! I just want to say "hello!" Got our RV backed out and starting to load up. Will give you a call when we get to your neck of the woods - probably a week or so.

  3. By the way - that photo of your dog looking at the cookie is just priceless!

  4. very intersting words here, Jan.

  5. I really like this. Such wisdom in your words. Sometimes things end so gradually, little by little. Sometimes we don't want to notice and go on as if they didn't.

  6. Excellent, Jan. So many people have faded away over the years, and it's always sad when I don't realize they are gone until it's too late.

  7. Isn't that so true. So very true!

  8. How very true and so well said.
