Because I Could Not Ever Bear to Say Goodbye To You


Because I could not ever bear to say goodbye to you
I’ve had to write it in a poem as some poets do
Hoping that my rhyme and verses help you understand
How sad I am to see my death now take me by the hand

My love for you is all that ever really satisfied
The needs, wants and emotions I kept hidden deep inside
How blessed was I each morning just to see your smiling face
And then to end each evening locked in your fond embrace

The happiness you brought to me throughout our married life
Was more than I could ever have expected from a wife
Your kind, unselfish manner and your generosity
Were clearly more than human, more a God-like fantasy

And so within this fantasy I watched each day go by
Never quite believing that one day I too would die
So what can heaven bring me that is better, more or new
Compared to what I lived each day in heaven here with you

And so my love I take my leave not knowing what to say
Not able to express my love, not able to convey
The depth of feeling and the gratitude I hold inside
For every wondrous moment since you first became my bride

    This poem is very beautiful, simply written and clear. Sometimes its best to relieve your emotions through scribbling when the guts fail to perform their function more especially when you have the overwhelming feelings towards somebody so as to leave your words memorable. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
