Some nice moments

Spent together

Some pleasant discourse

On subjects

Of mutual interest.

Some smiles

Some laughter

And then the goodbye...

Ah, what a word

Goodbye is!

Painfully sweet

Full of warmth

And yet

A reminder of parting

What a word

Goodbye is!

I agree goodbye is bitter sweet. You have to part for a time and that brings void/sorrow/hurt yet you know you will meet again which brings joy/anticipation etc and the midterm is left to memories to keep one going. Yes I totally agree with your piece..
