I Say Goodbye

As i release from my fingertips what was a lifetime,
I say goodbye -
As the final river of tears stream down my face,
I say goodbye -
These the last tears i will cry for this journey.
As i recall once more the path travelled and shared
with a truly amazing soul,
I say goodbye -
As i listen once more and allow myself to feel the depth
of emotion in the beautiful sounds of music we shared,
I say goodbye -
As i thank you one more time for sharing with me
the gift of our beautiful child,
I say goodbye -
And as i cherish for one more time all the happiness,
laughter, tears, love, trust, and friendships we shared,
I say goodbye -
As i now gather together all of these irreplaceable moments
and find a sacred place in my heart and my memory
where i now choose to let rest,
I say goodbye.

I see someone else has the 'gift of goodbye'. Sometimes we have to learn how to love people from a distance. When someone is not adding to your life, you must tell them, 'I love you, but I love ME more'. Very nicely written.
Charmaine, I've read your poems, and they're very good. A bit maudlin perhaps, but bubbling with talent. Looking forward to reading more. Cheers, Jerry
