How Shall I Ever Say Goodbye?

How shall I ever say goodbye...to all the years?

Or say Iíll go on ....without you here....

Can I place a lock and key upon my heart?

Will I ever be the same ...as we finally part?

 

 

So many smiles...so many tears....

Are imbedded in my heart....after so many years.

A kiss on the ground , in the sun near the pond...

The beach on an Island, of which you are so fond...

 

 

The night of a wedding where you were my man...

My "stand in love" as we said "Wasnít it grand?"

A test at a hospital when you held my hand...

A necklace and earrings from the tropical island.

 

 

A special time in the kitchen...

Special times at play....

Wonderful moments of loving and touching....

Seem as fresh ...still....today.

 

 

A coming and going...a going and coming....

The kiss that somehow never finished the parting ..

A song that said "nobody does it better"...

A final call and a final old letter?

 

 

 

All the memories can never be recalled ...

In a few short words...how could we remember them all?

Somehow as we stand here ..so many years later...

Thereís no good answer for why "they" are not together.

 

 

How shall I ever say goodbye to him?

A wave of a hand....and a lopsided grin?

Differently now... than ever before...

This time I am CLOSING the door.

What Do I Say?

 

 

What do I say...

To the man who taught me how to laugh again?

How do I tell him...

That Iíd forgotten how good it felt...

Until he came?

 

 

When can I speak...

Openly enough to tell him he has changed my world ?

Where do I find the words...

To let him know his kindness...

Warmed a cold heart?

 

 

Is there an acceptable way...

To say he makes me feel alive again?

Are there even proper words to say....

That the way I feel in arms is more wonderful...

Than anything I have ever known?

 

 

Is he able to believe...

That above all else I speak and feel..

His friendship comes first ...

Before the other things ...

I feel inside of me?

 

 

How does a woman tell a man....

That she thinks he is the most wonderful man...

She has ever met....

Without scaring him away...

Must she be silent?

 

 

What do I say...

To a man who is a mirror....

Of my own silly ways and thoughts...

And says what I think ...

Before I speak?

 

 

How do I tell him...

What he already knows..

And make it acceptable to him...

So he feels as safe with me...

As I do with him?

 

 

How do I say I am scared...

And yet cannot run...

Though perhaps I should?

What does a woman say, when she has finally met...

Her mental equal?

 

 

How does one feel safe...

And scared at the same time?

Possibly when she knows her world ...

Will never quite be the same ....

Even if he goes.....

 

 

 

What do I say...still? (The Continuation)

 

 

What do I say...

To the man who has cracked my shell?

How can I tell him...

That somehow I feel lost when he is not there?

How did I do my life ....before he came?

 

 

How will I do it again....

If he goes?

I have thought only of today...for a long time.

How do I dare... think of a tomorrow....

With him still sharing and caring?

 

 

What kind of magic did he use...

To make me ask these questions...

Of myself... and my heart?

Must I run...while I still may?

How can I give up the smiles?
