Hello And Goodbye - Poem by Jacqueline Vega

He says hello but I just say goodbye
That's not the way that it's supposed to go
So I keep listening to lovesongs lie

I can't be happy and I don't know why
When I want Yes its easier to say No
He says hello but I just say goodbye

I'm sure he's wondering now why I don't try
But he'll move on and I will not let go
And I'll keep listening to lovesongs lie

I'm better off pretending to be shy
My feelings are a weakness I won't show
So when he says hello I say goodbye

There's safety in a cool and downcast eye
But how much am I willing to forgo?
And keep on listening to lovesongs lie

Perhaps I'll see him someday by and by
And life will give me one more chance to blow
He'll say hello and I will say goodbye
And I'll keep listening to lovesongs lie
