Goodbye - Poem by j.c. monterrosa


i don't blame the world for anything,
i know i'm not alone...
but my heart bled the tears you cried,
and without the words,
the touch to heal you,
covered with my doubts and longings,
i lay in darkness,
waiting for your light...
I never believed in angels,
and with you gone,
i guess that i still don't;
but i always will remember
i believed in you...
how i wished we'd wake somehow,
within our fairy tales;
i wanted so much to love you more
with every sun that rose across
the waters you so loved...
i swam those waters,
no, i drowned within them,
the eternal seas of your sweet voice..
i never could imagine
you'd awake upon those shores,
without a world of memories,
everything between us gone...
i blame myself for lack of passion,
for not seeing about a girl;
i never would have said goodbye knowing
i'd never hear from you again...
blame is mine for being foolish,
tales are read and never lived;
work will always be there,
seems that love can slip away,
yet here we are, forever working,
without the love as proof...
childishly i dreamt and hoped
you somehow would return,
that one day you'd remember
all the laughter that we shared...
but now i stand alone in madness,
wondering if you were just a dream,
your words my waking call...
so with this kiss that was never ours,
i say to you, my dreams,
a part of me,
knowing full well it's not a true farewell;
your candle burns in me...
