Goodbye

When is it time to say goodbye
to all the fun we've had
When is it time to end this pain
and rid of what is sad.

We ride this rollercoaster
of emotions as we try
to make it through another day
but still I can't deny...

That sometimes when I look into your face
on days that have been bad
I see a look that calls for me
it's tired, hurt, and sad

The little spark I used to see
behind those dark brown eyes
Is getting very clouded
by things that hurt inside.

If I can bear to see you
just another day or two
I would just like to let you know
that I'll always care for you.

For letting go is harder for
the person left behind
It means that if I let you go
I cannot turn back time.

Back to the days I want so bad
when we were full of life
When everyday held promises
and our futures were clear and bright.

But now the lights are darkening...
we take it daily now
I cannot see our futures clear or
think beyond this cloud.

I think the hardest part in this
Is never knowing why.
I have to be courageous
And I have to say goodbye.

Yet, if I let myself admit
It's time to let you go
I'd have to face reality
Without you... but I know...
