Saying Goodbye to Love

Updated on August 4, 2014

Goodbye Love



Lately I've had the strangest feeling,
Intertwined within my mind.
This perpetual nagging thorn slowly killing,
Everything that I am not willing,
To walk away from by simply just saying…

I am beginning to believe that something is wrong.
I don't understand what has been done,
How you can just cause me to question my own thoughts.
When I finally asked what you were thinking,
You tell me that you felt like leaving,
You have not been in love with me for way too long.

Feeling surprised is not a reaction I should show.
The clues were all there so many years before.
I was focusing on the wrong clues,
When the obvious ones where right in front of me all along.

The thought of you no longer by my side,
Forces me to question my pride,
My character and,
The soul that shapes my very life.

Lately I've had this premonition,
You would begin to develop a missing feeling,
Then you'll come back on your own.
I know that this is wishful thinking,
You're probably going to stick by your decision.
I have this distinct gut feeling,
You are not coming back home.

Having to accept you no longer by my side,
It is a scary thought but,
That fear will have to be left far behind.
Deep in the back of my mind,
I have always known that your heart had already said………

The Importance of Love

You never are truly alone, the ones you walk hand to hand with, the ones who you have always known. Most of us don’t realize the very people who surround us, the ones who play an important part in our life.

Throughout our life we have those family members, a friend, and a co-worker who furtively helps in creating support for our soul. Love is a good thing to experience; it helps open the mind to a beautiful world. Loving yourself is a must, which can never be questioned, only understood. Without love which is created for supporting the soul from within can wither, and fade. Love will then never truly be shared with all the others who are outside looking in.
