When I say goodbye to you

With tears welling up in my eyes, I say goodbye.

Not just to you, but also to the times that will never be.

While I move on with life, finding solace in memories.

With you goes a part of me, never to return to me.

Of the sunny day when you showed me the rainbow.

And the winter noon that brought us together.

Of the countless evenings I spent in your company.

And the mornings I woke up, feeling your warm touch.

Now it is time to say goodbye; let’s make it a memorable affair.

Commemorate an occasion when a soul is sundered from the body.

When the love bids adieu to its love, when fate turns its back on you.

And this way I see my life bidding goodbye to me.

    Wow Jan. jus the right amount of emotions conveyed. Otherwise it’s easy to just flow with emotions and fall into the trap of melodrama. Really nice. Wish I had tought of this.
