Time to say Goodbye




Tell me when I can open my eyes
I don't want to watch you walk out that door
There's no easy way to get through goodbye
I'd probably try and talk you into staying once more
Or I'd lie and say it's all for the best
Wish you luck and say I have no regrets
But I'm not up to being strong
So I'll wait until you're gone
Is it over yet, is it over yet?

A taxi's waiting in the driveway for you
You call my name, I guess your ready to leave
I'd like to help you with a suitcase or two
But I'm afraid I'm gonna wind up down on my knees
I should tell you that I want you to go
I really need to spend some time on my own
Smile and say goodbye
So you don't see me dying inside
Is it over yet, is it over yet?

I should lie and say it's all for the best
Wish you luck and say I have no regrets
But I'm not up to being strong
So I'll wait until your gone
Is it over yet, is it over yet?

Sometimes we say goodbye not because we are ready to leave or let another leave but because that's what is required in the moment.

Good byes are a big part of this life. Sometimes very hard, others easy. All the best as you bid farewell to the person.

Nice poem!

Have a lovely week :)

A sure goodbye now is better than a few days of prolonged indecision and hurt.

Tell the dude, Ura na bumps. There is another jamaa around the corner who thinks you are all that, at least for now.

2@Poi:Goodbyes are tough but sometimes inevitable
@brother " Yeah "Ura na Bumps" :-)) .Lakini this is for a good friend who has to go away:-) Tough to say goodbye but people have to move on to greener pastures.
