What could I say when we began to part?

I steadily walked on the opposite side of this train

Nothing would come out nor could I speak

How could I say goodbye when I’m not ready to?


Nothing prepared me for our departure

Nor did I thought I would lose you like this

I wished nothing more than happiness for you

Yet it tortured me to say so towards you


I wish we could reunite as one someday

However I do not wish to interfere with your choice

I could only hope for the best in both of us

Wishful thinking will not bring us back together


I reminisced the days when we were together

Truly was unbelievable that I found someone like you

It seemed too good to be true at the time

Now it seems it has become a reality for me


It is bittersweet that we are friends

However I know you have your reasons

If only you knew how much I still love you

I wish we could have held on stronger


Our final days together are here

Those days I wish never came to be

I wish I wasn’t so selfish to not let you go

But you will always be in my heart


My beloved…

I will always love you

Goodbye Poem

Goodbye Poem

by charliseptember

I still remember that night; your smile caught my eye. 

We spent the night sharing thoughts and staring up at the sky.
I wish I could go back and re-live that night,
And have that one first kiss that still floods my mind. 

Endless days of laughter; free kids, free minds.
Skating down the street ’til the dead of the night.
High and blind; not a worry inside.
Then in the blink of an eye, you said ‘Goodbye’.

I tried all I could to keep you out of my head.
Heavy heart, sleepless nights in an empty bed.
‘Numb-out!’ ‘Who cares!’; I struggled everyday.
Try to forget your face but in my mind you stay.  

Unexpected, there you were, back into my life.
It all still felt the same, just like the very first night.
Holding you so tight, I felt it hard to sleep.
Our last dream together – time isn’t to keep. 

Dead leaves filled the city but the sun still shined.
Skating down the street under the clear autumn sky.
Standing on my porch, we share a sorrowed sigh.
Then in the blink of an eye, I said ‘Goodbye’.
