Petals of a Rose by zayathalana Petals of a Rose by zayathalana
Ain't it just the way it goes?
We pull the petals off the rose.
We never say hello to stay.
We always say good-bye.
We always say good-bye.

And ain't it just the way it seems?
We pull the petals off our dreams.
Our hearts can say we're here to stay,
But we always say good-bye.
We always say good-bye.

Weep for the day when a new friend comes your way.
Weep while you play for your friend will make you cry.
Weep for the night when he journeys out of sight.
Friends always tell you good-bye.
Friends always tell you good-bye.
- Gobo, s5e96 Change of Address


Thanks for everything, Mr Nelson. Sorry I can't draw fraggles better for you.

I really like the style you used for this pic, if that makes any sense. Both "petals of a rose" and "goodbye goodbye" may be my favorite farewell songs like ever, especially the line, "and even there's no grieving just a rainbow in the sky" I don't know, it just seems to say that goodbyes can have happy elements to them.
Mr. Nelson will be very sorely missed.

I have trouble taking Goodbye Goodbye out of show context where it seems more like Gobo's unhappy everyone's rushing on to the next new shiny thing without looking back or taking the time to be grateful for what they had. But your interpretation is more optimistic, for sure.

Gobo lost a piece of him and that same song you posted came to my mind as well. Also the song he sung, Good-bye Good-bye (Just a Rainbow In the Sky) - Season 2, Episode 15 (Manny's Land of Carpets).

Nice drawing, thanks for sharing.

I also drew a tribute to Jerry, if you want to check it out.
