Let me say

To you today

A fine ‘adieu’,

To a lovely two.


Another could tell

You ‘fare thee well’

Or ‘bye-bye’

And let it lie.


A fond ‘cheerio’

Would be from the trio

And ‘happy landing’

As here we are standing.


A formal ‘goodbye’

Would make me cry

For our ‘parting’

Is just starting.


‘A pleasant journey’

To those on a gurney.

But some might scoff

At this ‘send-off’.


I could say ‘Godspeed’

And watch what you feed

Upon the cruise

Or it’s ‘toodleoos!’


A Italian ‘addio’

Sings on the radio.

‘Arrivederci’

Is singular and catchy!


‘See you later’

To my Mater and Pater

Or ‘Shalom’

‘Till you get home!


‘Sayonara’

Is the same as ‘Aloha’

Also shout ‘tata’

And ‘hasta la vista’!


French ‘A demain!’

‘Until we meet again’!

But I call ‘ciao!’

To you right now.


Do not despair

It is only the air.

This isn’t a mirage.

I’m here to say ‘Bon Voyage!’

:-) 'A pleasant journey/To those on a gurney.' Clever, funny read. Yeggy.

LOL! I'm not sure that "later" rhymes with "Mater" and "Pater", but this is a delightful read.
