Do Not Say Goodbye To Me

Do not say goodbye to me.
Please just walk away.
Then I won't be able to hear those words.
I'll pretend that you will stay.

For goodbye is only acceptable
if the parting doesn't last.
And if it does then all I've loved
becomes part of my past.

You taught me love
and I rose above
all I thought I could be.
You taught me desire
and I felt the fire
that became a part of me.
You taught me boldness
and I left the coldness
on a bedroom shelf.
You taught me caring
and I craved the sharing
that became a part of myself.

So do not say goodbye to me.
Please just walk away.
For all that you have taught me,
when you leave will always stay.
