Richard Lam


Goodbye


How many times do you have to fall
To realize what you've been searching for is in front of you?
How many times do you have to be hurt
To realize who you actually love has always been beside you?
It must have been hard
For you to wait for me without complaint, without asking for anything in return.
It must have been painful
For you to see me with somebody else.
I am sorry, my love, for being selfish and thinking only about me.
I am sorry for wounding your heart.
You are just too good, too perfect for someone like me.
You are just too good, too perfect for someone like me.

How many times do you have to fall
To realize what you've been searching for is in front of you?
How many times do you have to be hurt
To realize who you actually love has always been beside you?
My heart felt funny when I saw you with somebody else.
The words that came out; they didn't match the feelings in my heart.
But it's okay, my love, I know you deserve better.
I can't turn back time, but I can let you go and find your happiness.
You are just too good, too perfect for someone like me.
You are just too good, too perfect for someone like me.

    a nice expression of a confused mind who loves someone though knows that she is much better than him but again at the same time loves her like anything. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
