Tell Me How To Stop Loving You

Tell me how to avoid the places where we used to go,
Tell me how to ignore people that we used to know,
Tell me how to throw away your shirt,
Tell me how to hide the hurt.

Tell me how to sleep and close my eyes,
Tell me how to silence dreaming cries,
Tell me how to leave the past behind,
Tell me how to rid you from my mind.

Tell me how to see you change and age,
Tell me how to be there at every stage,
Tell me how to make my life complete,
Tell me how to smile if we should meet.

Tell me how to forget your little ways,
Tell me how to turn off the radio when it plays,
Tell me how to stop waiting by the phone,
Tell me how to live my life alone.

Tell me how to stop wanting you every day,
Tell me how to eat and work and play,
Tell me how to simply just get by,
Tell me how to stop loving you until I die.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
