Goodbye To My Love

I said good-bye to my love tonight
I said good-bye with a hug so tight

I will always love him I will always care
I will always worship all the things we shared

I have known him almost half my life
I was his friend, his lover and then his wife

He was all my eyes could see for so long
I thought I would die with him, I was wrong

I said goodbye to my love tonight
I tried not to hurt him with all of my might

We talked together, we argued, we cried
when we were done it felt like someone died

My chest was so waited from forgetting to breath
All my  joys were deflated, I just felt empty

I wished I could fall back in love with him
I wished  for what we used to have again

My love for him died slowly, breaking off in little bits
neither of us even noticed until I called it quits

I said goodbye to my love tonight
There was no meanness, anger or spite

He told me I was wrong, he told me we were amazing
The pain went on so long, not one bit of it escaped me

I watched him drive away and wondered where he’d go
I wished for him some  peace from all his pain and sorrow

He will always know what he means to me
He will always be apart of my family

I said goodbye to my love tonight

    well expressed,

    a good bye is hard to take, but it is essential for both to learn and grow..

    Happy Rally.

    *hugs* this is so heart-breaking and touching. It was definitely the right choice if your not in love anymore but its such a hard choice to make. You’re very brave

    Yeah. Sometimes love does that. Breaks off in little bits. Then one pretty minor thing happens and the last bit of love blows off in the wind like the last petal on the daisy. Love me not.

    Your poem had a slew of emotion. Nice stuff.
