Goodbye My Love - Poem by Mellisa Aday

I didn't think the last goodbye
I ever heard you utter was forever.
If I had known, I would have taken it to heart.
I would have told you how you touched my life,
how you changed who I am for the better.

You once told me that I would know
if you didn't want to talk to me,
because you wouldn't answer the phone
or return my calls.Of course, now I see.

The truth stares me in the face,
and yet I deny it.
I can't let my heart believe.
I shouldn't pour sugar on it.

I understand that what we had can never be acheived again,
yet I long for the friendship we left behind.
I wish we could still be friends.

My values haven't changed,
and I'm sure yours haven't either.
So I look myself in the heart and tell myself
'You can't have either'.

So I write to you as goodbye.
An apology for the pain.
A closed chapter in our lives.
A tear for the pain.
