Remember, I used to call you
To come to the place we loved to be
Together we used to watch people pass by
The kids and the staring eyes that used to see
The love in our eyes and the bond of our souls
Same old things that are saying goodbye.
I have waited for this moment ever since I was gone
I only wanted the time to be ripe
When I could see you for one last time
And then cease to be a part of your life.
Friend, dearest friend, I have loved you more
Than the deep ocean trench
I have hidden a love wider than the sea
But now the time has come and I should
Make myself believe
In the futile faith I have in you,
Same old faith that must now say goodbye.
Remember, we used to spend hours together
Talking about everything under the sun
I used to listen to everything you said so carefully
Like my life depended on those words.
Remember, the time we used to laugh and
Remember the time we used to cry,
These are the same old times we have shared together
And now this time should say goodbye.
I had changed my decision when I saw you again
I wished I would never leave again
And then an unwanted gift was presented
A gift that shook me back to senses again.
I tried not to open it when I was alone
I knew what devastation it would bring
You are such a silly man, my friend
Could you not keep my sweet little things?
I wore them again and I felt I was empty
Like a glass that has poured all its wine
No more filling the cup again
No more of us dancing, no more of ‘you’ mine.
I will leave again, this time content
That you are happy and going on fine
I have been betrayed, looted and left to mourn
But I won’t let that fact change my life.
Remember, each word I said and each one I did not
Remember, the way I thought you were my prized possession
And all the ways you thought you were not.
Don’t make me want to love you more
I may deviate from the path I chose
But if you could, I would certainly love
To get just one……….or maybe meet again
When I am more equipped to face
Your face that must say goodbye.
Time is here and we never waste time,
I want to say so much but my words feel shy
Doesn’t matter, these are just plain old words,
And these words must finally say goodbye.
