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.
