The Song of Bye [Archives:2008/1167/Community]
By: Nashwan Ahmed Al Khawlany
When the sun sets off
The flower all withered
And the souls settled
While sitting aside it goes off
Moving the tree's roots
The wind is howling inside
Disturb the hearts and souls wide
but minds of the disappeared thoughtful batch
The birds are flying west and I watch
It hurts my things as they go away
With slowly fluttered wings, they fade away
Leaving the trees of my homeland high
It is so hard time to say GOOD BYE
The most bitter sweet words
Those separate the souls and hearts
When I say it hurts my eyes
How can I live without my friends-wise?
How can I live alone! Long I thought
Even to defeat what I fought
But destination is one's own destiny
A hope can be cut with one's own destiny
Burying one's own dreams
So hearts never is had as gold
It can turn hate into love
These I have found
With those whom I have lived a round
So long, but so short to my soul
No way to shun that moment's cool
No way is it time parting and I
I have to say GOOD BYE
To whom without my life is leisure?
Who turn my saddest moment vacant?
To a life full of pleasure and zest
How GOOD BYE'S tone will be sound-best
When eyes are motionless
Like a dead sea, it remains seen bless
Without my classmates and friends
A circle of waves as it begins, ends
How can I Bid those whose world is my heart
Whose sky my eyes?
How GOOD BYE last time would be
When we say GOOD BYE to
The white hidden but black lilies
Whom eyes ever be sick of seeing
Disappeared Beauty, decorum and really
Good manners, and good behavior, by modesty
So, we do not care for the next generation
As there are such leaders, on whom we can trust
Now the impending storm is about to come
To scatter those who have live for four years together
Someday soon, we must say GOOD BYE
That has all the melancholy of the world
It breaks our hearts so about are yours?
Last moment some say GOOD BYE others FAREWELL!
All cry inside when they hear the BYE SONG.
