    Watching the stars
    fade from the sky,
    the leaves falling down,
    the robin's last cry,
    the grass turning brown,
    A quietly uttered sigh.
    The hardest part
    of watching something die,
    is whispering softly
    the final "goodbye".

    It's hard to say "goodbye" to autumn, too.

    Excellent!
    And this is so true...
    It was the most difficult thing I've ever had to do in my life.

    When I first started reading your post, I thought you were going in the direction of how sad it is to see autumn pass (time of year when many people experience seasonal depression and suffer sadness that winter is approaching). The death of anything is lamented, whether it is for a season, a romance, a pet, a person, etc. Evidently, my impression of your writing was not in sync with yours.
