About the Poem

I'm writing this poem 15 days before my best friend leaves for Typee. I'm dedicating this poem to her hoping and praying that it will fix the fight that we are in the middle of. I don't want her to leave without saying Goodbye just because of a little argument that in her eyes isn't so little.

What If She Leaves Without Saying Good-bye?

What are we fighting over?
I simply do not know.
You have me lost in thoughts,
I'm tossing to and fro.

Soon you will be gone,
And you'll blame this all on me.
What can I say or do,
So the mistake we both can see.

Why did you pick this fight,
With me before you go?
I'm all alone and lost,
But of this you do not know.

If you don't say goodbye,
Before you turn and leave.
What am I supposed to do,
Except to cry and grieve?!

I thought our friendship was special,
I thought it meant a lot.
If you felt the same way,
Why are we stuck in this knot?

I don't like good-byes,
But in this we have no choice.
If you won't speak to me,
the good-bye's will come from MY voice.

We've managed through other fights,
But this one's not the same.
I'm not having any fun,
And I won't to stop this game.

I'm not good at soirees,
So I'll do my best with this.
I have one last request,
It is my goodbye wish.

I wish that we were friends again,
Before WE say GOODBYE.
Now that this is off my chest,
I wait and sit and sigh.

I like this poem because my best friend left me without saying goodbye because she had to go to a Foster Home and i havent talked to her in 5-6 months i havent seen her in almost 3years
the reason i chose this is because i lost a friend this year and i didn't say goodbye before he pased and i lost touch wit him and i regret that i had no time to say goodbye

The is a wonderful and touching poem. To me it says perfectly the feeling you have when someone leaves you without explaining why.
I likes your poem it kinda reminds me of me and my best friend now cuz she is mad at me and i dom't know why and she is fixing to move and I don't want her to leave being mad at me or without saying good bye!
this poem is so true and it is something I can relate to
What a great heart felt poem.
the reason i like this poem is because me and my bestfriend are in the same situation, and i dont know what to do about it. me and her are also step sisters, we have been in friendship for 5 years already and i dont want it to end

Hey i really loved this pome! It reminds me of one of my Friends Danelle, me and her got into a huge fight and havent talked sence! that really sux cuz she was like my bestest Friend
it's great! it touched my heart and made me cry.
That poem really touched me. I just left my best friend and I was afraid we were going to seperate on bitter terms and I shed countless tears and had restless nights. But I went out on a limb to see her before I left and we restored our beautiful friendship and I dont think we could possibly be any closer. I hope everythig has worked out for you. I wish you all the best in the world. I'd die if I didnt have my best friend.
I think this poem really encompasses all we are feeling at the moment we are frustrated with our best friend.
Its great.
this is a cool place. I just got into a fight with my best friend. this poem i just voted for i sent to the friend i'm fighting with. thanks it really helps.
This poem touches the heart and makes you think.
this poem is realli touching. I've known this friend for a year, I'm not sure if she forgive me b'cuz she said she had, but we are still avoiding each other. and i really hope we can be friends again.
