How do you say goodbye
To someone you hardly know?
How do you say goodbye
When they're just about to go?
How do you say goodbye
To someone with whom you've shared a kiss?
How do you say goodbye
When the words won't leave your lips?
How do you say goodbye
To someone so different from the rest
How do you say goodbye
When the air won't fill your chest?
How do you say goodbye
To someone you may never see again?
How do you say goodbye
When that person is your brother and friend?
How do you say goodbye
To someone who may leave for good and go above?
How do you say goodbye
When it's someone you truly love?
There's no way to let go
No way to hold on
All you can do is promise
To count the moments while they're gone.
Dedicated to: Shawn C. Slatt
I'll love you always.
