The Last Goodbye

Rating: 5.0

When someone special passes on
It does not mean they are gone,
Though they are no longer with us
Their memory still lives on.

You are someone that can't be left behind.
In my heart there's a place for you;
You will always surely shine.

You were always there for us all
Angel from above
You would always smile and call
And give everyone your love.

It's really hard for me to say goodbye,
I’m trying to be as strong as you are
and trying not to cry.

I wish so much we wouldn’t cry,
The way we are today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you,
And maybe see you smile.

So when tomorrow starts without you,
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For everytime i think of you,
Your right here, in my heart.

The last time I hugged you
The last time you smiled
The last memories we shared
That list will go on for miles.

The last chance to say I love you
The last chance to cry
The last chance to see you and with this
I'll say goodbye.
