How Do You Say Goodbye? - Poem by Lynne Barker

How do you say goodbye
When you don't want to see it end?
How do you fill the void
when they're more than just a friend?
Where do you put your memories
when there's nothing you want to forget?
What do you say at last
to be left with no regrets?
How do you keep your heart
from breaking right into?
When does your heart stop hurting
when you miss a friend like you?
