Silent goodbye

Published by at 7:48 pm under Goodbye Poems

Just trying to figure this out
how do you say goodbye?
Is it standing in front of them,,
Saying it with tears in your eyes?

Is it the breakdown you have,,
After they’re already gone?
Is it that wishful thinking,,
That this won’t leave your heart lying on the floor

Or maybe it’s just the thinking,,
About them everyday?
Or perhaps even the cutting,,
Trying to bleed the pain away.

I don’t know how to say goodbye
So I’ll just except the pain ..
I will no longer cry tears of hope,,
For there’s no satisfaction to gain.

So ill whisper a silent goodbye,,
While wiping the tears from my eyes.
I won’t be here tomorrow,,
but remember you’ll still stay in my heart…

    This was a wonderful poem and I’m gonna tell myself that you only put the part about cutting yourself in there ’cause you couldn’t find anything else that rhymed.
    Awesome poem. Again.
