Why Did You Say Goodbye

Why Did You Say Goodbye

I can’t believe you’re really gone

Feel like breaking down, but I gotta be strong

Cause’ the baby’s crying

And my heart’s still trying to let go

So I sing one last lullaby

I take a deep breath and look around

But everywhere I turn, Oh our memories are found


(And why did you have to say goodbye

You promised you’d love me all my life

You say I’m better off without you

And this is how it must be

So why do I still love a man who doesn’t love me)

It took a while to get used to

Not wearing your ring

I took down all our pictures

And I packed away all your things

Everyone said it’d be easier

You know,

Out of sight out of mind

I just wish I didn’t see your face

Every time I close my eyes


Just a bit more time

And the pain will start to fade

That’s what I try to tell myself

Each and every day

Every step I take without you

Gives me strength to carry on

And in no time at all

I’ll be living life’s new song

And I still don’t know why you said goodbye

Or why you couldn’t love me all my life

But your right, I’m better off without you

And this is how is must be

Now that my tears have dried

I can finally see

Thanks for sharing your thoughts in the form of a poem. It is really beautiful poem.

~Don't Cry Over Someone

That Won't Cry Over You.~

~Some Day You'll Cry For Me

Like I Cried For You,

Some Day You'll Miss Me

Like I Missed You,

Some Day You'll Need Me

Like I Needed You,

Some Day You'll Love Me

But I Won't Love You.~

Have a wonderful day.
