The Last Goodbye

We've walked a long way down the road



With smiles….and maybe tears



The journey seemed like only days



But has gone on for years



Our good times did outweigh the bad



Right up until the end



But then things changed..as you did too



On me you did depend.



I always tried to do my best



At times, I wondered why



But deep inside I always knew



That I would always try.



And soon the you I used to know



Began to fade away



I never knew what I would find



When I saw you each day.



Your mind, once keen, began to go



As did your body, too.



The person that I saw each day



I wondered, was that you?



You tried your best, but could not do



Those things that made you..you!



And deep inside I knew quite soon



You'd feel that you were through.



But I would be there every day



To let you know my heart



And tell you it was time to go…



Though we would be apart.



And on that day, that final day



When you did breathe your last…



I gazed upon that face I loved



And knew the die was cast.



So I must ready now, myself



While others care for you,



To gaze upon that face I love



And know what I must do.



I steady now this trembling heart



Though inwardly I cry,



I know that I must follow through….



To say that last ‘GOODBYE'
