Saying Goodbye

My Broken Heart

I’ve opened up so much to you.

I didn’t realize how close we are
until you hold me in your arms.

I catch my breath
and get lost in your eyes.

I wish you wouldn’t hold back
your feelings from me.

I wish you’d admit that
you want more than a kiss.

Instead, you are silent.

I know it’s time for me to
say goodbye,
but it’s hard to leave.

In a final embrace
I turn my cheek, you kiss it
and let me go.
