All the Words

Published by at 7:46 am under Goodbye Poems

It’s taken me days to fall asleep.
It’s taken as many to die.
For all of the world I’d have given to you,
but nothing as worthless as I.

It’s taken forever to conquer this age
It’s taken me longer to see
That, although I’ve spent so much time just to grieve,
I’ve thousands more tears within me.

It’s taken a sunset to marvel at smiles
It’s taken the ones I would count
By all of the seas, and all of the sky,
I love you more than that amount.

It’s taken me decades to find all the words,
It’s taken me more than my life.
For all of the time I have left on this earth,
I’ve caused us all nothing but strife.

It’s taken me days to fall asleep
It took you as many to die.
For all of the world I’d have given to you,
It’s taken no more than goodbye.
