Time To Say Goodbye And Let You Go


I never knew the time would come

When I would have to say goodbye

And trust me it hurts to say those words

So instead I will stand and weep

Into the cloudy mist

That no one can see

I tremble and fall

Into the muddy earth

But still no one can see

How much I care

Those words will break me up

One by one

Pulling me into complete darkness

All alone just waiting

Waiting for those words

To creep out on me

I never knew

How much it scares me

To be alone in a strangers place

Because when I leave

That’s how I’ll feel

I never thought

What it would do to you

But once I heard your voice

Convincing me it’s ok

You will never leave

You will always be there

But in my heart

It made me feel stronger

It gave me all the confidence

And courage I needed

To let you go and say the words

So here it goes

Goodbye my friend

I will be thinking of you always

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
