Be Happy and Goodbye


I do not need to hear from your lips
That you are happy with someone else.
I just have to look deep into your eyes
And see the light of bliss deep inside.

I do not need to hear you laugh
To know you are happy with your life.
I just need to see the way you move
Whenever you see her across the room.

You do not need to tell how contented you are
Or how fulfilled your dreams are now.
I just need to see you holding hands
To know you are on each others heart.

Now that you found your perfect match
Maybe I can cease to watch
Even when I am now above the clouds
You will be happy this time around

    This poem starts well and glows with traditional sentiments. However the ending feels a bit sudden and you could possibly continue or have a stronger conclusion. (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
