Farewell

I return to say hello one day
I speak as a whimpering puppy when he knows of something he’s done wrong
Unknowing of what she may say I begin
I’m sorry for everything I’ve done
Sorry for the things I’ve said
I know I may have come on strong
But I couldn’t help it
I promise I’ll be better
I’m far from who I was
Dark times plagued my heart and soul
Drowning my better judgment in sorry and grief

I knew not what I was saying
I only knew my needs
Someone to be there
Be there and be praying
I thought that you could help me and you did
You showed me who I was before
Before I was care free
Able to put things behind
I smiled all day long
Not a trouble I could find

But then the dark times came
Something you knew nothing of
I lay the burden on your shoulder
You were my saving dove
I shouldn’t have done that to you
I was cruel
Something that I’m not
Obsessive, clingy, annoying
All those days of friendship
I showed you what I’m not

So again I say
I’m sorry for everything I’ve done
Sorry for the things I’ve said
I know I may have come on strong
But I couldn’t help it
I promise I’ll be better
I’m far from who I was
Dark times plagued my heart and soul
Drowning my better judgment

She turned and walked away
Not a word said to me
I still wait for the day she looks my way
But I fear that day won’t come
So till then I say goodbye
Goodbye to a friend I once knew
Goodbye to my former, shadowed self
Goodbye to who I was
I have said all I needed to say
Unafraid of what may be
I needed to let my feelings show
And I have
Farewell my love
Farewell
