Long After I Should Have Said Goodbye - Poem by David Blake

In the glow of the candle light I saw the sadness
in her eyes. Tears slowly running down her face;
she knew I would soon say goodbye. In the
silence of that final embrace silently we danced.
Holding on to years of sorrow and pain, all the
youthful memories and dreams slowly like loves
ember burned away. As the sad song ended
knowing somehow I would never see her again
no words were spoken and with no regret I
turned and walked away.
