I'll Be Back To Say Goodbye

I'll be back to say goodbye,
for I'm not really leaving;
just going for a short time,
I may do a bit of grieving.

I'll mull over what you said,
that for us the end is near;
you have to find yourself,
I understand my dear.

And you will need to understand,
that I need time, like you;
to wonder where it all went wrong,
now that I've lost you.

I hope you find yourself real soon,
I can't throw away my life;
I can't toss aside tomorrows,
I can't eradicate a wife.

I'll be back to say goodbye,
if goodbyes are understood;
if goodbyes are set in stone,
then I will leave for good.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
