How Do You Say So Long - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

how do you say
so long to someone
who has given you
so much joy and happiness
for sixteen years
who now lays near-lifeless
in your aching arms

i can not say goodbye, dear one
i will not say goodbye
no, not now or ever
just rest well, my sweet angel
and know you were my love
yes, you were my life
