The Goodbye That Echoes

She stood there as he walked away,
Her eyes fixed on his every sway,
The man she loved, her shining star,
Now leaving, felt like a deep scar.

He hugged her tight, whispered goodbye,
Promised to write and not to lie,
But as he walked, the tears did pour,
She felt so lost, so alone and raw.

Memories flooded through her mind,
Of laughter, love and peace combined,
The way he hugged her when she cried,
The way he was always justified.

She thought of all the times they played,
And how he taught her what was right,
The way he hugged her every night,
And how he held her through the fright.

But now he’s gone, and she’s alone,
Her heart aches with a mournful tone,
She tries to be strong, tries to cope,
But the emptiness is all she knows.

She’ll miss his smile, his gentle touch,
The way he loved her oh so much,
But she’ll keep him close, in her heart,
And never let the memories depart.

For though he’s gone, and out of sight,
His love will always shine so bright,
And though he’s gone, she’s not alone,
For in her heart, his love has grown.

So she’ll keep walking, day by day,
And hold her head up, come what may,
For she knows deep down, he’ll return,
And until then, her love will burn.

And though the goodbye echoes still,
She’ll find a way to heal and fill,
The emptiness that’s left inside,
With love and laughter, by her side.

The Road Not Taken

She watched him walk away,
With heavy heart and misty eyes,
As the man she loved, her shining knight,
Left her behind, to face the skies.

She thought of all the laughter they shared,
And all the times they danced and sang,
The way he held her when she cried,
And how he loved her with a love so strong.

But now he’s gone, and she’s alone,
With just the memories to call her own,
Of the road they took, the journey shared,
And the love that still lingers, everywhere.

She’ll miss his smile, his gentle touch,
The way he loved her oh so much,
But she’ll keep him close, in her heart,
And never let the memories depart.

For though he’s gone, and out of sight,
His love will always shine so bright,
And though he’s gone, she’s not alone,
For in her heart, his love has grown.

So she’ll keep walking, down the road,
And hold her head up, with grace and poise,
For she knows deep down, he’ll return,
And until then, her love will burn.

And though the goodbye echoes still,
She’ll find a way to heal and fill,
The emptiness that’s left inside,
With love and laughter, by her side.

And so she chooses, to take the road,
Not traveled by, and make it her own,
With memories of her father’s love,
Guiding her every step, from above.

A Father’s Farewell

She stood there, as he walked away,
Her eyes fixed on his every step,
The man she loved, her rock and stay,
Leaving her with a heart full of regret.

He hugged her tight, whispered goodbye,
Promised to write and not to stray,
But as he walked, the tears did flow,
Leaving her with a heart full of woe.

She thought of all the tales he told,
And how he held her when she was cold,
The way he laughed, and the way he smiled,
The memories she’ll keep for a while.

But now he’s gone, and she’s alone,
Her heart aching, with a mournful tone,
She tries to be strong, tries to cope,
But the emptiness is all she knows.

She’ll miss his voice, his gentle touch,
The way he loved her, oh so much,
But she’ll keep him close, in her heart,
And never let the memories depart.

For though he’s gone, and out of sight,
His love will always shine so bright,
And though he’s gone, she’s not alone,
For in her heart, his love has grown.

So she’ll keep walking, day by day,
And hold her head up, come what may,
For she knows deep down, he’ll return,
And until then, her love will burn.

And though the goodbye echoes still,
She’ll find a way to heal and fill,
The emptiness that’s left inside,
With love and laughter, by her side.

A Father’s Departure

She stood there, as he said goodbye,
Her heart heavy, her eyes misty,
Her father, the one she loved so dear,
Leaving her with a world of fear.

He hugged her tight, whispered in her ear,
Promised to always be near,
But as he walked away, she couldn’t help but cry,
Feeling lost, as she watched him leave by.

She thought of all the memories they shared,
Of laughter, love and joy declared,
The way he held her when she was sad,
And how he always made her feel glad.

But now he’s gone, and she’s alone,
Her heart aching, as if made of stone,
She tries to be strong, tries to carry on,
But the emptiness is all she feels, till dawn.

She’ll miss his voice, his gentle touch,
The way he loved her, oh so much,
But she’ll keep him close, in her heart,
And never let the memories depart.

For though he’s gone, and out of sight,
His love will always shine so bright,
And though he’s gone, she’s not alone,
For in her heart, his love has grown.

So she’ll keep walking, down life’s road,
With courage and grace, she’ll bear the load,
For she knows deep down, he’ll return,
And until then, her love will burn.

And though the goodbye echoes still,
She’ll find a way to heal and fill,
The emptiness that’s left inside,
With love and laughter, by her side.

A Father’s Absence

She stood there, as he left her side,
Her heart aching, tears she couldn’t hide,
Her father, the one she looked up to,
Leaving her with a feeling so blue.

He hugged her tight, kissed her on the cheek,
Promised to always be within reach,
But as he walked away, she couldn’t help but sigh,
Feeling lost, as she watched him bid goodbye.

She thought of all the times they played,
And how he taught her what was right,
The way he hugged her every night,
And how he held her through the fright.

But now he’s gone, and she’s alone,
Her heart shattered, as if made of stone,
She tries to be brave, tries to cope,
But the emptiness is all she knows.

She’ll miss his smile, his warm embrace,
The way he loved her, with a smile on his face,
But she’ll keep him close, in her heart,
And never let the memories depart.

For though he’s gone, and out of sight,
His love will always shine so bright,
And though he’s gone, she’s not alone,
For in her heart, his love has grown.

So she’ll keep walking, day by day,
And hold her head up, come what may,
For she knows deep down, he’ll return,
And until then, her love will burn.

And though the goodbye echoes still,
She’ll find a way to heal and fill,
The emptiness that’s left inside,
With love and laughter, by her side.
