Our Last Goodbye - Poem by Shelly Price

As we each said our last good-bye...
each mistake rolled through my head.
I tried so hard to block them out...
all the ugly things we said.

I've tried to relate each mistake...
to a lesson I now understand.
As each new day comes and leaves...
without the sweet caress of your hand.

I'll struggle through each new day...
searching for hope yet seeing blind.
As my heart continues to morn...
for my dear friend that was left behind.

You'll forever have this heart of mine...
that I'm afraid I just can't undo.
Along with all the love I have...
still inside of me just for you.

I'm sorry for the pain that was caused...
each time the tables got turned.
I'm sorry that we just couldn't stop...
until we each felt we had been burned.

You have justified all the reasons...
why you felt it best to say good-bye.
I guess it just wasn't worth it anymore...
so why bother to continue to try.

And so now we both have closure...
to our torred love affair at long last.
We each have said our final good-bye...
making 'us' now just a thing of the past.

Do me a favor as you try to move on...
remember 'us' with a smile on your face.
Hold tightly to each memory you have...
memories of us will be hard to replace.
