To Say Goodbye


To say goodbye, would be wrong
Where did the time go?
The love so strong, the time so short
Drifting away to our little worlds
Doing our own things
Living our own lives
To a different beat
Our paths drifting far apart
Making our worlds farther away
Nothing seems the same
The morning kisses so few
The holding of hands never more
The hugs of love, not tight as before
The 'I Love You' so cold
Romance was everywhere
Now in the closet
Together is never the same
You have your ways, I have mine
They clash so much, lately
Our dreams so different
Where did the love go?
The hearts so broken, no time to mend
The suitcases packed for one last time
All I can say is one more Goodbye

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
