True Love II (Goodbye)

This might be the last time
I would have a chance to say goodbye to you
Because I’m going to leave you tomorrow
To persuade my dream of being the best for you

It’s really hard for me to let go of you
Because you are my everything
But for me to become the best
I must make some sacrifices

I thank you
For the wonderful memories we shared
All the sweetest moment’s we had
And I hope you can forgive me for being selfish

I just wish I could see you before I leave
I wish I could hug you one more time
I wish I could kiss your lips
For the last time

I hope you understand
I don’t want to leave you
But that’s life
We must take chances

And I promise you
That when I come back
You will not regret
The decision I made….

    You better make good your promise. There are those who easily forget once they are away. I know you are not one of them. (Report) Reply

    So sweet. I believe your loved one would understand your reason for leaving. Anyway, it is but temporary and you promised to return. These were captured beautifully in the poem. Nice work. (Report) Reply

    Great to see someone so young writing poetry like this, Jhustin. Please keep it up, you show a great deal of promise. In fact, if English is your second language, and I would assume that as you live in the Philipines it is, what you're writing is amazing. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for wanting another comment on your poem from me ;) Saying goodbye is never easy...but when it is the 'right' thing to do...we must follow our heart! Nice poem although a sad one.. (Report) Reply

    You portray it well, I think, but I've never been a guy. It seems very real. Why wouldn't the speaker even keep in touch while he was gone-'cuz he'd miss her too much to think straight?
    Reminds me of Jane Austen's novel Persuasion. The heroine persuaded by her friends to give her lover up, still loved him and regretted doing that; when he did return w/his circumstances improved, she still loved him and of course it ended happily ever after.
    The only next question is whether it does ever happen so in real life. (Report) Reply
