, , , , ,


you wanted me to leave with you
we hugged
holding on as tightly as could be
I pulled away from you
as usual
I wish for once I could just go with you
say no to everything and yes to you
your eyes welled up
trying and trying to be brave and strong
your face moved lower
forlorn and long

crying now inside
alone and bereft
you slowly disappear
it’s just me left
missing your smile
longing for your touch
minutes without you
days as such
your voice echoes softly
inside my heart
the cutest wave goodbye
I loved you from the start
