I Guess This is Goodbye
Tears well up in my eyes
but I can’t give in to their selfish demand
of breaking down when there is yet
so much more to explain.
I’m not any good at goodbyes,
so I just wish you could understand,
that this is as hard as it can get
’cause there’s nothing left besides pain.
I’d beg and crawl
if it would make you stay
but something tells me
you’ve already made up your mind.
Yet even through it all,
I stand here today
hoping somehow you’d see
what it is you’re leaving behind.
So it is okay,
you can walk out the door.
I promise you I am fine,
even though we know it’s a lie.
I know I will find a way,
so I won’t need you anymore,
I know you’re no longer mine,
so right now I have to say goodbye.
This poem was inspired by the song “Be there in five” by Tammy Byerly.
