Why I did not cry?
Why I did not cry
The day we said goodbye?
I already had the image of you and me
Hugging each other so tightly
An image of hardship in letting go
A couple in a beautiful sorrow
With my arms surrounding your neck
The world and time was a wreck
Why I did not cry? Oh please, can you tell me why?
I really want to cry and I do really try
Teardrops will make goodbyes so sad
Like how the saddest movies end up so bad
Instead, you kissed my lips and neck with a smile
You said "take care" instead of "goodbye"
You hugged me close but not so tight
We did not even look into each others eyes
I Can't even speak, I choked as I reply
and murmured goodbye without looking into your eyes
I can hardly breath, I was thinking so deeply
That moment I did not cry is slowly killing me
I act like that, of course I knew why
Pretending not to care and not loving you is a lie
I'm scared of rejection, this feeling I denied
That is why on that day, I did not cry
