“I love you, goodbye”

On December 21, 2012, in General Blatherings, Suckage, by Lisa

“Some words are sad to say
Some leave me tongue-tied
But the hardest thing to tell you
But the hardest words I know
Are I love you goodbye
I love you goodbye”


That’s the chorus  from a little known Thomas Dolby song that I happen to adore and it just seems to fit this year as I’ve said goodbye to Max, Lucie, my good friend Lynn and now Duty’s dad who passed away suddenly on Wednesday night.

There’s a lot I said goodbye to this year along with my furbabies, good friends and father-in-law.


Each person, pet, event and more shapes who we are now, for better or worse.

And even though this year had a lot of “I love you, Goodbye” in it, there’s always lessons, joys, triumphs and the knowledge that we are all here to do our work, whatever that is.

Merry Christmas to my treasured three readers and I wish you many blessings in the holiday season.


PS: I’m not going anywhere. Even if I’m not here all the time, this is my safe place. :)

  1. Take care of yourself in all this, Snarkela. That’s a lot of loss to process and it can take it’s toll. Be careful and gentle with yourself this holiday season.

    Go see “Les Miserables.” The spiritual message is wonderful.
