Goodbye - Poem by Michelle Tiddy

We've just this minute said goodbye...
I don't know how I feel
I've stacked the dishes with trembling hands
This seems so surreal
It is finally over, the year has ended

I've seen this coming a long time
You said this must stop, it is fruitless
It's not going anywhere, it's just dreams
My hands are cold and my heart is numb
Not sure what I should do

Yes, numb, and very cold
And the tears are hot on my cheek
But no matter what you say
I won't forget about you
The way you made my heart sing

The way you made my soul dance
You say I have a soul, well listen
You gave it to me in my hands
Before you, it and I hadn't met
But now we are one

I'm sure I'll get through this day
Of remorse, regret, anger
I'm off to work soon, there
I can smile and laugh with people
Hiding the turmoil I am in

It is for the best I know
You are you, I am me
You are too dark, I am too bright
You would never be my Mr Right
It's ended, I feel empty, I'll survive.

    Em? ? ? ? sometimes, what we see as endings, are really just 'pauses' on the way to yet 'another' new beginning.........This is sad and oh so poignant. (avonga) hugs, marci.... (Report)Reply
