Don't put on that sorry face because you are leaving me,
I'm happy for you.
For whatever makes you happy,
Makes me happy as well.
But you mean the world to me,
Sorry I never told you that before;
Forgive my pride.
But for a long time, ..
I missed the girl I fell in love with.
The girl with the most magnificent eyes I've ever seen.
The girl who when she looked at me,
I would hear life overflowing,
I would hear my heart pound,
And my sorrows flea to make room for joy.
There were times when you used to look at me with no lie in your eyes.
How I miss those happy days.
You are a blessing to me,
And a gift from heaven.
So it's not goodbye,
But bye bye for now;
Because I know we will be together again.
